Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations, Bashar Jaafari, stated that Damascus was ready to do “whatever it takes” to “stop this bloodshed” despite it being “extremely painful” for Syrian government officials to sit in the same room as other Syrians allegedly “linked to foreign agendas and working for foreign powers”. ~ He made the statement during a press conference at the International Meeting on the Syrian Settlement in Astana, Tuesday.
