Syria denounced the statements made on Monday by the Norwegian Prime Minister on her country’s intention to send 60 special forces soldiers to train what she called “Syrian fighters” under the pretext of fighting ISIL.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement to SANA on Tuesday that the Syrian Arab Republic denounces these statements and asserts that any decision that the Norwegian government intends to take in this context contradicts international legitimacy and the Security Council’s resolutions on combating terrorism which call for coordinating with the governments of the states involved in fighting terrorism.

The source said that such a decision constitutes a blatant and unacceptable interference in states’ affairs and a flagrant violation of sovereignty, security and stability, stressing that it cannot be justified by saying that it’s part of combating terrorism since it hasn’t been conducted in cooperation with the Syrian government.

The source affirmed that those who actually want to help fight ISIL, al-Nusra Front (Qaeda branch in the Levant), and other terrorist organizations affiliated with them mustn’t employ double standards that categorize terrorists as “good” or “bad” because all those who bear arms in Syria against the Syrian people and legitimate government are terrorists, adding that events proved the connections in logistics and ideology between the assorted armed groups that bear arms against the Syrian state.

The source concluded by saying that Syria calls on the international community and the Norwegian and global public opinion to take a stand against such irresponsible decisions that have resulted in the spread of terrorism in the region and the world, with terrorism striking in the hearts of European cities while their governments’ continue to practice imbalanced policies regarding the crisis in Syria and regarding the war on terrorism.
