A number of Syrian expatriates in the US gathered in front of the UN headquarters in New York in condemnation of the US President Donald Trump’s proclamation on the occupied Syrian Golan.
Participants of the demonstration chanted slogans affirming their adherence to the occupied Syrian Golan and its return to Syria.
The participants held banners reading: “Golan Has a Syrian identity, Syrian history, Syrian geography and Syrian people.”
They also condemned the unilateral coercive measures imposed on Syria by the US and Western states, calling for the lifting of unjust sanctions imposed on the Syrian people.
At the end of the demonstration, a group of expatriates, who had travelled from Allentown City, Pennsylvania, visited the permanent delegation of the Syrian Arab Republic headed by Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, hailing the efforts he exerts to defend Syria at the UN.
They reiterated solidarity with the homeland, its army and leadership and affirmed that they would stand by it until security and safety had been restored to every inch of Syrian territory and the final victory over terrorism had been achieved.
They also hailed the firm stance of President Bashar al-Assad’s defense of Syria and his national leadership and how he stands in the face of the global terrorist project, which has targeted the Syrian state, people and institutions.
