Syria showed Full Cooperation & Commitment to Annan's Plan
(Dp-news - Sana)
UNITED NATIONS- In a speech during the Council session, Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said that some of the statements made during this session called upon Syria to implement the Council's resolution while those who made the statements themselves are moving away from it.
Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said that he met with the UN Secretary General and senior aides on Saturday and appealed to him to exert good offices and be more involved in the efforts to guarantee applying the desired political and national solution to resolve the crisis, adding "this is a good opportunity to appeal to you all and address to you the same appeal which I addressed to the Secretary General."
Al-Jaafari said that the Syrian government was open to any honest and neutral initiatives and efforts since the beginning of the crisis to help emerge from it while preserving Syria's sovereignty, independent national decision, security and stability, with Syria showing great cooperation and commitment to Annan's efforts.
Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari affirmed that Syria implemented its part of Annan's plan and is still committed to this, and that it's updating Annan on regular daily basis with written reports on steps taken in this regard, which includes releasing detainees who did not shed blood, delivering humanitarian aid to affected areas in cooperation with OCHA (Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs), and allowing over 600 media outlets to enter Syria.
Al-Jaafari said that the Syrian government on Sunday informed Annan that it carried out the second article of his plan completely, saying that police and law-enforcement forces will be charged with keeping peace and order and will show the utmost self-restraint while remaining ready to confront armed terrorist groups should they continue to breach the cessation of violence, while the Syrian Arab Army will remain prepared to defend Syria from any attack and secure strategic sites.
Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari noted that sending neutral observers was originally a Syrian demand based on self-confidence and a position of strength, and that the reason behind such a demand is to inform the world public opinion of the terrorists' crimes away from media and political misdirection, noting that this happened with the Arab League observers who presented an objective report documenting the crimes of terrorists, which prompted Qatar and Saudi Arabia to withdraw their observers, suspend the entire mission, and ignore their report completely.
Al-Jaafari added that Syria renewed cooperation and openness by signing the preliminary agreement organizing the operations of UN observers in Syria, and that the Syrian government is ready to sign the protocol organizing the deployment of observers when the UN is ready, stressing that Syria has a true interest in ensuring the success of the observer mission, with emphasis on the need for the observers to be objective, neutral and profession.
"Some sides responded on this clear commitment by the Syrian government by carrying out a hysterical campaign of doubt that unveiled ill intentions on their parts on principle regarding Syria, accentuating their strong frustration over the signs of returning stability and calm to Syria," he said.
Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari also noted that terrorists answered the Syrian government's commitment to Annan's plan with a long series of violations, with them intensifying their terrorism and attacks against civilians, law-enforcement forces and public and private facilities, saying that the Syrian government provided Annan, Ki-moon and the Security Council with detailed information on the violations made by armed groups after the beginning of the ceasefire on April 12th, adding that the violations number over 593 as of Saturday.
Al-Jaafari voiced Syria's deep concern over the continuing of the suspicious disregard of terrorist activities which were accompanied by a methodical media and political misdirection campaign aiming to demonize the Syrian authorities and army by blaming the terrorists' crimes on the Syrian state and manipulate public opinion by twisting facts and employing a total media blackout regarding the terrorists' crimes.
"All these practices aim at foiling Annan's mission and ascribing the responsibility of this failure to the Syrian government in order to reach military action under humanitarian excuses, similarly to the lies that led to the destruction of Libya's infrastructure and the death of 150,000 Libyan civilians at the hands of NATO with Qatar's participation," he said.
Syria's Representative stressed the need for Annan and the Security Council to deal with the Syrian crisis comprehensively by exerting efforts to ensure that armed groups and those supporting them are committed to the cessation of violence in order for this cessation to be sustainable, reiterating that Syria's support alone isn't enough to ensure the success of Annan's efforts, as Arab, regional and international sides must commit in words and actions to stopping the funding, arming, training and encouragement of armed groups, as well as stopping their instigation of the Syrian opposition to reject dialogue.
"Some who predict the failure of Annan's plan are doing their best to fulfill this ominous prediction… the best example of this is the statements of the Emir of Qatar in Rome only two days after the Security Council adopted resolution no. 2042 when he said that the chances of Annan's plan to succeed don't exceed 3%," al-Jaafari said, adding that some countries are also creating parallel tracks to Annan's plan that could undermine it and waste the efforts for reaching a peaceful solution, with these tracks including the conferences held in Tunis, Istanbul and Paris which pass plans outside international legitimacy to arm the opposition, reject peaceful solutions, and imposing sanctions on the Syrian people.
Syria's Representative noted that sometimes there's boasting of increasing sanctions as if harming the Syrians and taking away their livelihood and rights to development and stability is a major victory.
"It's a paradox that after every Syrian approval at dealing with any political proposition, a conference is held in parallel to fan the flames of the crisis, push towards removing the solution from its peaceful outline, and undermine any positive solution to resolve the crisis without shedding the blood of Syrian civilians and military personnel," al-Jaafari said.
Dr. Al-Jaafari pointed out that the absolute truth among Syrians is their rejection of interference in their country's internal affairs, commitment to protecting their country's sovereignty, continuing with reform and national dialogue, and not allowing time to be turned back to any form of subjugation or custodianship or occupation, be it direct or indirect.
"The Syrians know full well that the forces who have ill intents for Syria are targeting them all and trading with their pain and legitimate ambitions in the bloody stock market controlled by the interests of Israel and its governments and allies," he said.
Syria's Representative Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari concluded by addressing a statement made by Germany's Representative who voiced his country's commitments to protecting "minorities" in Syria, stressing that there are no minorities in Syria; rather only Syrians who are proud of their cultural and religious diversity and don't want Wahabi and Salafi extremism to sneak among them through oil money and religious and sectarian incitement which is preached by some Qatari and Saudi channels.
