Foreign Ministry: Syria Will Fight Terrorism, Work on Political Solution

Ministry says Ban should have underlined the need to deal with the roots of the Syrian crisis

 

The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said on Monday it is regrettable to hear the U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon say things that contradict reality and are not objective regarding the humanitarian situation in Syria and the performance of the Syrian Arab Republic delegation to Geneva conference.

 

In a statement,  the Foreign Ministry said Ban should have underlined the need to deal with the roots of the Syrian crisis by implementing the Security Council’s resolutions pertaining to combating terrorism affecting the Syrian Arab Republic, which is upholding its duties of protecting its citizens and defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity, and that this should be done by forcing the countries supporting terrorist groups to cease support, arming, funding and harboring them.

 

The statement confirmed that the Syrian Arab Republic will continue to combat terrorism with all means at its disposal, and at the same time it will continue working diligently towards a political solution and national reconciliation.
