Government Delegation Says Opposition Refuses to Join Sessions

The Syrian Government delegation to the committee to discuss the constitution has criticised the opposition for rejecting the proposals put forward writes SANA.

A source from the Syrian national delegation at the Committee to Discuss the Constitution affirmed that for two days, the delegation has been ready to discuss the national principles on which Syrians don’t differ, but the Turkish regime’s delegation disagreed to these points, and refused to discuss them for reasons that have become well-known by the Syrian people.

The source told SANA’s reporter in Geneva that, “for two days we haven’t entered any session due to the rejection of the Turkish regime’s delegation of the national principles which our delegation wanted to propose.”

The source noted that the Turkish regime’s delegation, which is subordinate to its Turkish masters, has refused to engage in any discussion on the basic national principles which are of interest to the Syrian people. 

The source went on to say that the subordination of the Turkish delegation to a foreign power made it reject discussing basic principles such as the independence, sovereignty and combating terrorism. 

“The delegation of the Turkish regime is the one that has refused to join the sessions for two days and not our delegation, because they are unable to discuss national issues such as the rejection of the Turkish and US occupation and the fight against terrorist organizations and combating terrorism,” the source said. 

On Monday, the national delegation submitted a proposal for an agenda that includes discussing national principles, but the Turkish regime’s delegation rejected it and they refused to come to the UN headquarters to discuss the agenda, obstructing the start of the meetings of the small committee which were scheduled to be held on Monday and last for five days, after the completion of the first round which was held between Nov. 4-8, 2019.
