Syrian Vice President Najah al-Attar said that the funds paid by Arab states to finance terrorism in Syria should have been used to establish scientific and cultural projects and wider development in the Arab world.
During a meeting with a delegation of Jordanian figures on Monday, Attar said that the terrorist war imposed on Syria failed to affect its national and pan-Arab stances, along with its attitude towards Arab causes, primarily the Palestinian cause.
Attar claimed a fraternal relationship bonded the Syrian people with their Jordanian brethren, and wondered how Jordan could permit terrorists to enter Syria, or accept America’s decision to train terrorists on Jordanian territories, She also highlighted the difficult conditions of displaced Syrians at the countries’ shared borders, and the difficulties facing Syrians who wish to visit relatives in Jordan.
It’s time for Jordan to adopt a different position and refrain from standing with Syria’s enemies in the West and the Arab world who conspire against it, Attar said, voicing regret over the function of the Arab League as a tool in the hands of sheikhs and emirs who pay to influence its decisions and agendas.
Head of the delegation, Jordanian-Syrian Fraternity Association Chief Sami al-Majali, said that the Jordanian people have become aware of the conspiracy against Syria, and that the delegation’s visit symbolizes the Jordanian people’s support for their Syrian brethren.
