Syria`s FM meets UN Secretary General

Syria`s FM meets UN Secretary General

(DP-News - agencies)
UN, NY- As the week-long meeting of the U.N. General Assembly ended Monday, and after Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met Monday with Syria's foreign minister Monday, the U.N. chief's press office issued a blunt statement.

"The Secretary-General raised in the strongest terms the continued killings, massive destruction, human rights abuses, and aerial and artillery attacks committed by the government," it said.

"He stressed that it was the Syrian people who were being killed every day, and appealed to the government of Syria to show compassion to its own people." the U.N. chief's press office said Monday.

Ban again went after Syria in a meeting later Monday on the threat of chemical weapons, alluding to the widely-held belief that the Assad regime has stockpiles of them. Ban warned that the "use of such weapons would be an outrageous crime with dire consequences."

In turn, Syria`s official media reported “Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem, on Monday met UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and discussed the standing cooperation between Syria and the UN in all fields.”

Syria state-run news agency SANA said “The two sides reviewed the efforts exerted by the UN in Syria in the humanitarian field and  in the field of UN Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi as they discussed means of developing this cooperation to facilitate the Brahimi's mission in addition to what is requested from all sides which are hindering his mission through arming, training and financing the armed terrorist groups.”

“The two sides agreed on the importance of halting violence from all sides to launch national dialogue among the Syrian people to overcome the current situation in Syria.” SANA concluded.

On Monday, Syria’s Foreign Minister told the United Nations General Assembly that the violence racking his country was entirely the fault of other nations supplying the armed opposition, that the refugee crisis was concocted by Syria’s enemies and that a dialogue on a political transition was still possible.

Syria`s FM Walid al-Moallem used his 30-minute speech to blame France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United States for inducing and supporting “terrorism in Syria with money, weapons and foreign fighters.”

Al-Moallem said the refugees who had fled Syria had been manipulated into leaving by Syria’s neighbors to create an artificial crisis so those neighbors could receive foreign aid. He appealed to refugees to return.

 Syrian FM al-Moallem said that Syria was a target of a plot to extend Western hegemony and the interests of Israel throughout the eastern Mediterranean region, adding that “the doors of Syria” are open for a dialogue that would lead to “a more pluralistic and democratic Syria.”
