(TASS) ~ The air strikes France delivered on Syria were not coordinated with Damascus, Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations Organisation (UN) Bashar Jaafari told TASS correspondent on Sunday.

“The French president has not coordinated those actions with the Syrian president,” he said. “The French military acted without an agreement with the Syrian armed forces. It is impossible to be fighting terrorism other than in cooperation with the legal government in Syria and the Syrian military. This is exactly what President Putin meant calling the Syrian army the only legitimate force to deal with in fighting terrorism.”

He said France does not have the right to “fight terrorism this way – unilaterally,” even if it is a member of the so-called “coalition” for fighting the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq.

“This is an American coalition, not an international one and it is not based on the Security Council’s resolution and is not supported by a consensus,” the Syrian ambassador said.

TASS learned from the office of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon they have not been informed about the planned air strikes.

The UN deputy spokesperson Farhan Hak refused to answer the question whether France has violated Syria’s sovereignty or whether its actions complied with the UN Charter.

Like in similar cases, the Security Council will decide whether that was acceptable or not, he said.

Jaafari commented abruptly on Hollande’s announcement about air strikes on Syria and on his statement Bashar Assad does not have a role in future of that country.

“By calling for change of the regime he is contradicting with the UN Charter,” the ambassador said. Words of the kind are clueless, especially at the UN headquarters
