Foreign Ministry: The US decision to arm terrorist groups reflects direct involvement in bloodshed

Jun 14, 2013

Damascus, (SANA)- The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry stressed that the White House's statement on the use of chemical weapons in Syria is "full of lies" and "based on fabricated information".

"Pursuant to impudent practices the United States has previously resorted to in order to justify its policies, the is White House issued a statement full of lies on chemical weapons use in Syria and based on fabricated information," an official source said in a statement Friday.

The source slammed the White House's statement for trying to hold the Syrian government responsible for the use of these weapons despite the fact that "repeated reports confirmed that the extremist terrorist groups in Syria have lethal chemical materials in their possession as well as the technology needed to produce these materials and smuggle them form some neighboring countries."

The source criticized the flagrant double standard policy the US is practicing in the way it deals with terrorism.

"While seeking banal means to justify the U.S. President Barack Obama's decision to arm the Syrian opposition, the US is practicing a flagrant double standard policy in dealing with terrorism," it said.

The source lashed out at the US administration's double standards when it claims keenness on combating terrorism and adds Jabhat al-Nusra to its terrorist groups lists, while at the same time it supplies the terrorist groups in Syria with arms, money and equipment and provides political coverage to them through blocking a UN Security Council condemnation of their massacres.

The latest of these massacres, the source said, was that which Jabhat al-Nusra committed in Hatla village in Deir Ezzor province, claiming over 60 lives, mostly women and children.

The source also condemned the U.S. decision to supply the armed terrorist groups with arms as reflecting the US's "direct involvement in the shedding of the Syrian people's blood."

The US's decision, the source added, "raises serious questions about the sincerity of its intentions to contribute to finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria at the time when it stokes violence and terrorism by arming the terrorist groups which are going on with their crimes against the Syrians backed by the US and its allies."
