West cannot hide crimes against Syria with humanitarian allegations: Syrian envoy to UN

Press TV – September 17, 2020

Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar al-Ja’afari says the West’s crimes, including economic terrorism, against Syria cannot be hidden by humanitarian claims and allegations.

Speaking at a UN Security Council session on the humanitarian situation in Syria via a video link, Ja’afari said the Western states, which have introduced coercive economic measures against the Arab country, would not be able to cover up the repercussions of their economic terrorism against Syrians.

He also stressed that the humanitarian allegations against Syria made by the West would not be able to hide its horrible crimes in exerting more pressure on the Arab nation and hampering the reconstruction process in the war-ravaged country and the return of the displaced Syrians.

Ja’afari noted that some Western countries, which have slapped Syria with persisting illegal sanctions, are telling outright lies in claiming that they are not targeting Syrians and that they are trying to provide humanitarian and medical exemptions to assist the Syrians.

The Syrian envoy also lambasted claims by the Western states that Damascus had deprived COVID-19 Syrian patients of due treatment, stressing that Syrian citizens are in fact suffering greatly from the disastrous effects of Western coercive measures.

“Since 1978, the US successive administrations have imposed coercive measures on the Syrian economy and its vital sectors, such as civil aviation, petroleum, energy, telecommunications, technology, banking, import and the export, including the import and manufacturing of food, medicines and basic medical equipment, to dissuade Syria from its stances in rejection of the hegemony and occupation policies,” Ja’afari added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Syrian envoy demanded the withdrawal of all Turkish troops and their allied militant groups from northern and northwestern parts of the Arab country.

He also stressed the need for ending the US occupation of the areas northeast of the Arab country and holding Washington and its allies and separatist militias and terrorist groups affiliated to it responsible for prolonging the suffering of the displaced in al-Hawl and al-Rukban camps.

In conclusion, Ja’afari referred to a recent report by the Guardian, which cited US research centers and academics as saying that the US, since 2001, has displaced 37 million persons in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen and elsewhere under the slogan of the so-called “war on terrorism.”

  1. The U.S. and E.U. are murderers – plain and simple. They have murdered millions in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen with their bombs and sanctions. They have no respect for human life. They have created refugees all over Europe but have not helped any who have fled their countries because of them. Shame!

    And, the so-called “war on Terrorism” was never properly investigated by the USA Government, but they “knew who did it” (Osama Bin Laden) even before the dust had settled in NYC, but they flew his family out of the USA while there were no flights allowed in, or out of the USA.

    The NIST report is pathetic, the Crime scene was cleaned up IMMEDIATELY, and the USA government has shut down anyone who askes awkward questions about the FRAUD of 9/11………

  3. Hear, hear. Goddammit, Hear, Hear! America (+other scofflaw Western/Zioregimes) = “exceptional nations,” my ass. Yes, I rue being an Ugly American at this point of my wasted life.

    ( read very recently that NE Syria is beset by horrific wildfires […who might have set ’em?] … status?)

    (I wish Ambassador al-Ja’afari had not missed the opportunity to remind various and sundry colonialists of the imperative of returning the Illegally Occupied Golan Heights to Syrian sovereignty.)

    (Last paragraph: I think I’m correct that, in Killary Clinton’s, Samantha Power’s, and other morons’ myopic view of the world outside Zionist-Occupied WashDC, “war on terrorism” falls under an evil rubric: “R2P” or “Responsibility to Protect.” What goddam rot…from rotten-hearted as**oles.)

    (Might there be a video link(s) to the Ambassador’s remarks…and esp. to reaction by the faux-“elite” UNSC attendees? Did what’s-the-bitch’s-name successor to Ziobitch Nikki Haley walk/stalk out in high dudgeon?)

    • Niki Haley is a “very nasty piece of work”, pure evil, and will say anything her Israeli masters will want here to say. She does not represent the wishes of the American people.
