States Sponsoring Terrorism Have No Political, Moral Legitimacy to Decide on Syria’s Human Rights Situation - Envoy
By Staff, SANA
Syria affirmed that United Kingdom’s draft resolution about the status of Human rights in Syria clarifies once again Britain’s insistence to politicize works of the Human Rights’ Council and its mechanisms in a way that contradicts the UN charter.
Commenting on the Human Rights’ Council adoption of a UK draft resolution titled “the situation of human rights in the Syrian Arab Republic,” and extending the custody of the so-called “Commission of Inquiry on Syria,” for one extra year, Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Hussam al-Din Ala, said that the states that sponsor terrorism, occupy parts of Syrian lands and impose unilateral measures that rise to the level of crimes against humanity, have no political or moral legitimacy to submit resolutions about the human rights status in Syria.
“Britain, the main sponsor of the draft resolution, has been the first active side in fabricating allegations and circulating political and media campaigns against the Syrian government and the supporter of the so-called commission of Inquiry on Syria whose reports stress its role in deepening the crisis in Syria,” Ala said.
He added that allegations of committing to the political solution, ending the humanitarian suffering, respecting the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic and its territorial integrity won’t come in agreement with the context of the British draft resolution which adopts the language of provocation against the Syrian state’s institutions.
The Syrian envoy affirmed that his country rejects that politicized draft resolution that depends on fabricated lies.
