New York, SANA- Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations and the Permanent Mission of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations organized on Thursday an unofficial seminar in the UN under the title of “The White Helmets Activities in Syria”, with participation of Syria’s permanent representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari and Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia.
Al-Jaafari said that Syria sent a total of 750 letters to the UN Secretary General , Head of the UN Security Council, the Security Council subcommittees on counter-terrorism and other international bodies since 2011, all of which are related with the activities and crimes of terrorist groups.
Al-Jaafari pointed out to the negative role of the Western media outlets in misleading the Western public opinion by presenting the White Helmets as a humanitarian organization which carries out civil defense work, while the truth is it represents the media arm for Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization.
For his part, Nebenzia said that the Western media outlets present the White Helmets terrorist members as humanitarian heroes, poiting out to the Western media outlets’ attempts to cover up the reality of this terrorist organization supported by some Western countries.
In response to questions from the audience, al-Jaafari stressed that the so-called foreign fighters are terrorists in nature, indicating that the states which support terrorism in the UN Security Council were completely denying the presence of these terrorists in Syria until some of them returned to their countries of origin, including Britain, Belgium and the United States and committed acts of terrorism, which led these countries to recognize what we have been repeating about the nature of the terrorists.
Al-Jaafari said that those countries sponsoring terrorism were trying to get rid of the terrorists by sending them to Syria in order to die without putting on their agendas the turning back of the terrorists to their own countries.
