Syria’s Permanent Representative at the UN has said Western states, particularly the United States, are working to prolong the crisis in Syria by investing in terrorism.

Iran Press/Middle East: In an interview with Al-Mayadeen TV channel on Friday, Bashar al-Jaafari added that  the so-called international coalition which Washington created without Security Council approval continues to support Daesh (ISIS) terrorists.

Al-Jaafari said that terrorism is used as a tool by its sponsors, and from time to time they recycle it to utilize it in one area or another, as proven by the incident when Algerian authorities arrested hundreds of terrorists on its borders with Niger, and after interrogating the terrorists it was revealed that they had come from Aleppo’s countryside, wondering who transported these terrorists from Syria to the border region between Algeria and Niger.

Syria’s Representative said that since the beginning of the crisis, the Turkish regime has been facilitating the transit of terrorists through its territories and into Syria, sponsoring all sorts of international terrorists from all over the world.

He added that the Turkish regime has yet to implement its commitments as per the Sochi agreement regarding the removal of terrorist organizations from the de-escalation zone in Idleb, stressing that a military resolution in Idleb is inevitable if the political efforts to implement the Sochi agreement fail.

Regarding the situation in al-Rukban camp, al-Jaafari said that two humanitarian corridors have been opened at the outskirts of al-Tanf area on February 16th by Syria and Russia to evacuate the displaced people being detained in the camp.

He said that Western states are not comfortable with any objective effort carried out by UN envoys to Syria, and they always pester them at the Security Council when they make statements by making preconditions and objections to pressure them to act outside their mission.

He concluded by asserting that Syria always has and always will view the Palestinian cause as the central cause, adding that all that is happening in the region seeks to liquidate this cause, and that the Warsaw conference came to achieve this end, in addition to normalizing relations between the Israeli enemy and certain Arab regimes. 101/211/202
