Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari reiterated Syria’s full support to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and its categorical rejection of the US interferences in Venezuela’s affairs, calling upon the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) member states to adopt a unified stance in support of the legitimate government in Venezuela.

“Syria realizes the conspiracy hatched against Venezuela and it understands what is taking place in it and the goals of its enemies who want to steal its resources and to change its strategic stances,” al-Jaafari said in a statement during the Emergency Meeting of NAM Coordinating Bureau.

He affirmed Syria’s full support to the government of the legitimate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and its solidarity with the leadership and people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in preserving the sovereignty of the country and foiling the hostile schemes which aim at toppling the legitimate government in this country.

Al-Jaafari voiced Syria’s categorical rejection of the US stark interferences along with a number of states in the internal affairs of Venezuela, noting that dialogue is the only way to reach a political solution that respects Venezuela’s sovereignty and independence.

He indicated that Syria is fully convinced that the Venezuelan leadership, government and people who have resisted the US tendencies of hegemony and arrogance, are today more able to confront and foil this renewable conspiracy and to preserve the sovereignty, independence and security of their homeland.

Al-Jaafari added that NAM’s inability to impose its ten principles in the international relations has harmed some states, such as Syria because some of NAM states have cooperated with its enemies to destroy Syria, and today, they are doing the same thing in Venezuela under false and flimsy pretexts.

He reiterated that the latest developments witnessed in the friendly republic of Venezuela don’t pose a threat to the international peace and security in any way, as what is taking place in the country is a domestic affair, but they are trying to move it to the Security Council under the pretext that the situation in Venezuela threatens the international peace and Security.

He called upon the international community to stop some reckless states which have exploited their permanent membership at the Security Council to achieve their colonial agendas.

Al-Jaafari renewed Syria’s call on NAM member states to express their adherence to the principles of the movement through adopting a unified stance in support of the legitimate government in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

He went on saying that the Security Council has adopted /30/ resolutions on the crisis in Syria till now and all of these resolutions affirm the independence of the Syrian Arab Republic and its territorial integrity, yet many states which voted in favor of these resolutions have been the first to violate them.
