Syria’s U.N. Envoy Says Human Rights Resolution Biased

A Syrian diplomat slams Qatar and Turkey and claims no massacres have taken place in the town of Qusayr
Syria’s U.N. Envoy Says Human Rights Resolution Biased

Syria's permanent representative to the U.N. in Geneva, Faisal al-Hamwi has labeled as a "disgrace" Qatar and Turkey's sponsorship of an emergency session of the U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC), as the two countries are "primary accomplices in the murder of Syrians."


Addressing the session Wednesday, Hamwi said whenever the countries supporting terrorism in Syria sense that their mercenaries are suffering military defeats, "they rush to hold impotent sessions."


Hamwi claimed no massacres had taken place in the town of Qusayr, and that the tears shed by the resolution's sponsors over Syrians are "pure hypocrisy and a cheap ploy," pointing out that the suffering of the people of Qusayr was at the hands of extremist groups who launched missiles and shells at citizens in Lebanon, in a desperate bid drag the country into the Syrian crisis.


"Syria, which is fighting terrorism and protecting its people, will continue to cooperate with honest efforts to end the crisis politically," Hamwi said.


"[Syria] will not acknowledge this resolution, because it is irresponsible, immoral, and contains an incredible number of lies and slander."
