Damascus has called on the United Nations Security Council to act against the insistence of the US-led coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group on perpetrating massacres against the Syrian nation, and supporting the remnants of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, in two separate letters sent to UN Secretary General António Guterres and rotating President of the UN Security Council Mansour Ayyad al-Otaibi on Tuesday, stated that the only goal of the “rogue” military alliance is to undermine Syria’s sovereignty, unity, and territorial integrity and to prolong the current crisis.

“The Syrian Arab Republic urges the Security Council to shoulder its responsibility regarding establishment of international peace and security, and act immediately to stop the war crimes being committed by this alliance against the Syrian people, and ensure that they do not occur again,” the letters read.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry also demanded an end to the illegal presence of US forces on the Syrian soil, and cessation of US suspicious plans that seek to divide Syria and plunder its resources.
