Bashar Jaafari: Damascus Ready to Find Solution to Syria Crisis

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Dr. Bashar Al-Ja’afari, told the General Assembly on Tuesday that the Saudi draft resolution accusing Damascus of committing human rights abuses against its own people is both hypocritical and politically-motivated.

While addressing the 55th session of the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, the Syrian envoy said that any nation voting in favor of this resolution was committing a hostile act towards the government in Damascus.

Dr. Al-Ja’afari criticized Saudi Arabia over their refusal to join the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which he claimed was hypocritical of the Gulf nation.

The Syrian envoy said that Saudi Arabia was committing daily human rights violations, pointing to the Arab Coalition’s current war inside of Yemen.

He would conclude by pointing that the states supporting the bill were members of the US-led Coalition.

The Saudi draft resolution was first presented in November; it has been the source of the recent diplomatic friction between Damascus and Riyadh.
