Moscow, 22/11/2014 – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov demanded that all countries abide by the international resolutions, particularly those calling for shutting down the sources of funding and arming of the terrorists of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL).

Addressing a press conference following a meeting with his Saudi counterpart Saud al-Faisal in Moscow, Lavrov referred to the Security Council’s resolutions 2170 and 2178 of which he said Russia has been part and by which all countries agreed to halt providing funds and support to any terrorist organizations in the Middle East and North Africa.

He stressed the need that all operations of importing and selling oil from the areas under the control of terrorists be halted along with any related terrorist acts in compliance with the Security Council’s resolutions.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also took a swipe at the US over the way it deals with the situation in Syria.

“For how long will the US’s way of dealing with Syria remain subject to the furthest limits of ideology?” Lavrov wondered in his address to the Assembly of the Foreign and Defense Policy Council in Moscow on Saturday.

He also criticized the US for not seeking a Security Council mandate for its military operations against the terrorist organization of Daesh (ISIS/ISIL).

“Of course it is necessary to go to the Security Council because Syria is a sovereign state and a member of the UN and has not been discharged by anyone,” Lavrov said.


Beirut, 22/11/2014: Syrian Foreign Minister, Fayssal Mikdad, said that West and its followers must learn from Damascus how to counter terrorism.

Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad stressed that many leaders of the countries and intellectuals in the world have exposed the terrorist Western policies against Syria and their destructive effect on the world and on the West itself.

”Fear has become notable in the statements of the Western officials who provided a shy description of the dangers of terrorism in Syria and Iraq which is totally different from what they have been promoting using all forms of distorting the facts of what is taking place on the ground, Mikdad said in an article published by Lebanese al-Binaa Newspaper on Saturday.

”Syria’s enemies in the West and region have no choice but to admit that the heroic resilience of the Syrian people in the face of the terrorist war, which they declared against Syria, has foiled their plans and undermined the sinister conspiracy hatched against the country,” Mikdad affirmed.

He indicated that the moral and political bankruptcy of the Western states, who thought that they have controlled the capabilities of the world since the end of what they called the “Cold War”, has made the world a hostage to a single pole which imposes its hegemony on the political, cultural and economic situations in the world to serve the West’s interests and institutions.

“This has undermined the credibility of the international organizations which have become a tool for implementing the Western approaches in different domains,” Mikdad clarified.

He stressed that in spite of the fact that the West have admitted very late that Syria and Iraq are facing terrorism, yet they are still hiding the second half of the truth which is their lack of courage to define who arms , harbors, finances and trains terrorists.

”It is impossible to believe that the Western intelligence apparatus don’t know those terrorists and their intentions, and the terrorist role played by the Turkish and Saudi governments which arm and finance them to kill the Syrians, Iraqis, Egyptians and Libyans,” Mikdad elaborated.

“The Western leaders don’t have the courage to admit the mistake they committed and media fabrication which they practiced in various directions to justify their role in the killing and destruction in Syria and later in Iraq and Libya,” he added.

He warned against the dangers of terrorists when they will return to the cities and countries from which they have come, saying that the lie of the so-called “moderate opposition” will not be believed by the European nations anymore.

”The takfirist mentality which has been supported and nurtured by the Saudi regime has been the main basis of al-Qaeda and its branches,” Mikdad said.

He affirmed that “If the West and its followers honestly and really want to counter terrorism and implement the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council Nos. 1373 , 2170 and 2178, we tell them that the road is very clear and Damascus is the address,”
”All those must learn from Damascus how it has combated terrorism and remained resilient and how it has kept terrorism’s danger away from the nations of the world and preserved the dignity and sovereignty of Syria and its civilized and humanitarian role,” Mikdad said.
