RELATED: “According with well informed American officials, the USA strategy is to push back ISIS terrorists from Iraq into Syria…which mean collecting all garbage from the world and send this garbage to Syria….this is the USA & allies strategy”.
(Bashar al-Jaafari at the UN 5/11/2014)

New York, Bashar al-Jaafari at the UN 20/11/2014 ~ Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari stressed that some of the countries which support the international terrorism have foiled any joint international effort to combat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria “ISIS” terrorist organization.

Al-Jaafari criticized the UN Security council which has not taken any measures against the governments which support terrorism according to its latest resolutions no. 2170 and no. 2178.

The remarks came in a speech delivered Wednesday during a session of the Security Council on terrorism threat to the international peace and security.

“One of the gabs in the work of the sub-committees is shrouding the measures they take with regard to the information provided to them with high secrecy,” al-Jaafari clarified, “For example, we have not received any reply to the letters which we have sent to the committee of the resolution no. 2540 up till now.”

“On 22/10/2014, we sent a letter including the photos of victims who were killed in shells containing incendiary chemicals that were used against the locals in the Syrian area of Ayn al-Arab, and we don’t know if the committee follows up or cares about the ISIS attempts to bring a toxic gas and to use it in Syria,” he elaborated.

Al-Jaafari wondered how the UN senior officials have gone too far in using the term of “moderate opposition” when talking about terrorist organizations listed on terrorism list by the committee of the resolution no. 1267 and despite the letters sent by Syria in this regard.

He referred to the airstrikes which have been launched by the US-led collation against the ISIS in Iraq and Syria, saying that despite Syria’s calls to cooperate and coordinate with it, some countries have foiled any joint effort in this regard.

“Airstrikes have been launched against the ISIS from two months in a time when US newspapers such as the Washington post have published statements by US senior officials in which they say that more than 1,000 foreign fighters enter Syria through the Turkish borders monthly,” al-Jaafari lambasted.

He elaborated that “What has been published by the New York Times on the possibility of establishing an alliance to expel the ISIS from Iraq is good, and we accept it, but after achieving this, members of the ISIS will be pushed to enter the Syrian territories instead of eliminating them, and maybe the goal behind this is to justify the continuation of operations launched by the US-led coalition in the future.”

Al-Jaafari warned that targeting oil and gas fields and the infrastructure in Syria by the coalition will hugely harm the Syrian economy and will hinder the reconstruction process.


He called upon the UN to play a more active role in putting a limit to the countries which support terrorism, indicating that the only beneficiary is Israel.

He referred to the report of the Analytical Support Team which shows that there are thousands of al-Qaeda-linked foreign terrorists in Syria and Iraq, indicating that those terrorists came from more than 80 countries from all around the world.

“Syria has welcomed the resolutions Nos. 2170 and 2178 of the Security Council and it called for implementing them strictly, and it expressed readiness to be a part of the regional and international cooperation in countering terrorism,” al-Jaafari said.

He indicated that he has obtained confessions of a terrorist who says in them that he and his group intentionally committed the massacre of al-Houla on 25/05/2012 a day before the session of the Security Council on Syria, adding that the confessions are translated and they will be sent to the committee of the resolution no. 1373.

Al-Jaafari derided as unobjective the opinion of the French representative who said that the “ISIS” has grown under the umbrella of what he described as the support of the “Syrian regime”, indicating that this is a strange paradox by a representative of a permanent member state of the Security Council.

He added that al-Qaeda and the other terrorist organizations have been supported by the Saudi Arabia Kingdom, and now more than 72 Saudi clergymen call upon Muslims to go to Syria for the “Jihad”, wondering how the kingdom allow them to do that.

For his part, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin said that the double standards in dealing with terrorism is “unacceptable” as the weapons sent by some countries to the so-called “moderate opposition” are seized by terrorists.

Churkin expressed his country’s concern about trafficking in the Syrian oil by terrorists, indicating that the daily revenues of terrorists in Syria and Iraq exceed USD 3 million.

Regarding the resolution No. 2170 of the Security Council, Churkin said that the resolution has not been implemented, indicating that the council must pay more attention to this issue.

He indicated that last April, the European Union allowed buying the Syrian oil from non-Syrian merchants which indirectly means facilitating the private trade of Jabhat al-Nusra and the ISIS terrorist organizations which control the oil fields in the northeastern area of Syria.

China’s Permanent Representative to the UN Liu Jieyi stressed that counterterrorism should be based on a unified criterion, emphasizing the need for committing to the international law, the principles and goals of the UN Charter and respecting sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the countries.

Jieyi called on the UN and the Security Council to shoulder their responsibilities in this regard as the only guarantee for maintaining the unity of the Council and coordinating its efforts in a way that empowers countries to carry out an international strategy for combating terrorism.

He expressed his country’s denunciation of all forms and phenomena of terrorism.

Jieyi called on the international community to unify efforts to maintain the international peace and security and adopt relentless steps for combating terrorism which uses internet to recruit terrorists.

For his part, Chairman of the UN’s al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee Gary Quinlan clarified that the ISIS threat is a real big threat as it threatens a large group of persons in addition to a large number of the foreign gunmen who joined it.

Quinlan said that the Committee recommended implementing the sanctions imposed on the ISIS, adopting a number of measures for drying up the sources of financing it and preventing it from obtaining the oil revenues.

He added that the ISIS seizure of oilfields in Syria and Iraq, and its ability to use smuggling routes to sell oil, have enabled the it to get revenues ranging from USD 850,000 to USD 1 million a day.

The committee also recommended measures tackling the ISIS ability in Syria and Iraq to gain money from selling looted antiquities.

For his part, Argentina’s Foreign Relations Minister Hector Timerman affirmed that some countries’ decisions on arming “freedom fighters” lead to critical dangers because they may change their destination or the side they are fighting for, stressing the need for preventing the delivery of any kind of supplies to armed terrorist groups.

Luxembourg’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Jean Asselborn, stressed the necessity of putting counterterrorism and extremism associated with violence as top priority, pointing out the increased concern over the danger of terrorist organizations such as ISIS, al-Nusra Front, al-Qaeda and all relevant organizations.

Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop stressed that her country is determined to stop the influx of militants from Australia to alleviate the suffering of Syria and Iraq, pointing out abolishing passports of more than 70 suspects.

For his part, the U.S. delegate hailed UNSC Resolution No. 2178 on preventing the influx of foreign militants to conflict zones, though his country did not adhere to it, claiming that the USA has worked and will work with all sides for realising the resolution.

Britain’s representative, whose country has ignored warnings of danger of supporting terrorism and has condoned its growing for political objectives, said that the international community should cooperate with the United Nations for confronting terrorism.

Fallacies and attempts to evade the responsibility of creating terrorist organizations, ISIS in particular, which has been founded by the USA, France, Britain and others, were as usual the French part’s task, whose delegate claimed that the Syrian government is responsible for supporting this organization ignoring what Syria has been doing for more than three years in combating terrorism.

Saudi regime’s delegate did not deviate from its ordinary context, attempting to claim rejection of terrorism and adopt measures for countering it, paying no heed to his regime’s role is supporting all terrorist organizations and exporting extremist ideology to all over the world.

In his previous speech, al-Jaafari reminded of the report issued by the International Centre for the Study of Radicalization which ranked Saudi Arabia the second among many countries in terms of sending terrorists to Syria.

The London-based Centre estimated the total number of foreign fighters in Syria as between 11,000 and 12,000, with only about 3,000 of them from the West, while among others Tunisians make up the largest group (3,000), Saudis (2,500) and Morocco (1,500).
