Foreign Ministry to UN: Syria Maintains ‘Right to Respond’ to Turkish Aggression

Syria’s foreign ministry on Sunday called for an immediate end to Turkey’s acts of aggression against Syria’s sovereignty and the Syrian people’s safety and security.

The demand came in two identical letters sent by the ministry to the United Nations Secretary General and Chairman of the Security Council, citing repeated attacks and violations of Syrian territorial integrity by Turkey.

The letters described the Turkish transgression into the Syrian territories as “a blatant act of breach” against all the rules of international law and the charter and principles of the UN.

The foreign ministry highlighted the Turkish government’s continued military, logistical and financial support to terrorist organizations inside Syria.

Turkish army and intelligence officers frequently visit training camps set up on Syrian soil, namely in Azaz, to train terrorists in handling weapons and carrying out assassination operations.

Passageways and crossings have also been dug for terrorists under the supervision of the Turkish army and intelligence service.

The foreign ministry’s letters demanded that the Security Council assume its responsibilities and work to put an end to these attacks in order to guarantee international peace and security.

The Syrian government, the letters said, maintains “the right to respond” to Turkey’s repeated violations and acts of aggression, stressing its right to claim compensation for damages and losses resulting from these acts.
