Syria denounced yesterday’s statement made by EU foreign ministers on the situation in Syria as proof of the deep European involvement in a plot targeting Syria.
The EU statement, an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said, also confirms European complicity in shedding the Syrians’ blood.
In a statement to SANA, the Foreign Ministry source dismissed what came in the EU statement as “allegations and lies,” saying they assert that the European Union is apparently going forward with its policy of “systematic misinformation” despite the fact that the entire world now realizes the reality of the aggression against Syria being carried out by armed terrorist groups.
The source highlighted that these groups, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the Nusra Front, are receiving “unlimited support" by some regional countries and international major powers.
Returning to "former stances” will lead nowhere as far as reaching a solution to the crisis in Syria is concerned, the source stated.
While the EU “is shedding crocodile tears” on the humanitarian suffering of the Syrians, the source said, it overlooks that it is the EU’s policy of backing terrorism in Syria, the imposition of economic sanctions and the repeated attempts to abort efforts seeking a way out are the reasons the Syrian crisis is still dragging on.
Those causes, the source stressed, are what led to the growth of the terrorist activities that have come to pose a serious threat to regional and international peace and security, activities which involve thousands of terrorists who came from European states undeterred and under the nose of those states’ intelligence services.
The source went on to say that the stance of the European Union proves that it is "unworthy of having a decent status in the international arena having accepted to be subordinate to others’ policies and a payer of their bills and a model of hypocrisy with it renouncing the very values it advocates."
The Foreign Ministry source stressed that the EU’s statement and other similar statements will only make the Syrian people and army more confident and determined to achieve victory while "proudly" confronting the forces of the obscurantist takfiri terrorism.
