New York ~ Syria’s permanent Envoy to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said on Thursday the Syrian government is ready to continue cooperation with the UN to deliver humanitarian aid to all citizens affected by the crisis in any region.

“The admission of aid should be done in accordance with the UN principles for the humanitarian aid in the states of emergency, on top, respecting Syrian sovereignty, territorial integrity and in light of commitments resulting from the response plans signed with the Syrian government,” al-Jaafari said in a speech at a UN Security Council session to discuss regular report of the UN Chief on implementing resolutions 2193, 2165 and 2191.

He added that it is impossible to deal with the painful humanitarian situation in Syria apart from “the backgrounds of foreign economic, military and political intervention in the Syrian scene” as this intervention was the reason behind the emergence, feeding and the spread of terrorism in Syria and the region.

Al-Jaafari warned against that intervention as it is the main reason of the emergence of the humanitarian crisis in some Syrian areas, yet, it is not possible to improve the humanitarian situation remarkably and truly without halting the foreign intervention.

“The national reconciliations in Syria have proven once again that the Syrians are capable of sitting along with each other and solve their problems if the foreign intervention in their own affairs stopped, and if governments of countries which sponsor terrorism were forced to stop their bloody polices,” al-Jaafari said.

He considered that it is not probable for some countries, including Security Council members, to hide behind the so-called “moderate armed opposition” to justify their use of terrorists and extremists as tools to carry out their political agendas in Syria.

Al-Jaafari wondered why some sides legitimize the existence of what they call “moderate armed opposition” in Syria only other than many countries, and why they dedicated the Syrians with this innovation while we witness a campaign in the western media to market for armed groups in Syria.

He affirmed that it is of the Syrian government’s national and constitutional duty to protect its citizens from the plague of terrorism and extremism, and it is impossible for the Syrian government or any government in the world to fail to take actions while terrorists target the safe civilians with random shells as in Damascus, Aleppo and other Syrian cities.

He wondered why some members in the Council, which pretend keeping to Syrian civilian souls, didn’t say any word about those crimes, and that attitude has been repeated when water was broken off for weeks in Damascus and Aleppo by that “moderate armed opposition.”

Al-Jaafari said that Syria welcomes the appointment of Stephen O’Brien as United Nations’ Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, and Syria considers his visit to Syria and his meetings with Syrian officials as a good start to return things to their right place in order to boost transparent cooperation with the UN in the humanitarian field.
