Syria Millennium


Russia and China on Monday vetoed a draft resolution proposed by Spain, Egypt and New Zealand to the Security Council that demands a ceasefire in Aleppo City, while Venezuela voted against the draft resolution and Angola abstained from voting.

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari called upon the countries which claim that they are keen on the interests of the Syrian people or on reaching a political solution led by the Syrians themselves or on eliminating terrorism to coordinate with the Syrian Government.

In a speech delivered during a session of the Security Council, al-Jaafari indicated that the countries which support terrorism are dreaming of undermining Syria as they had earlier dreamt of undermining Iraq, Libya and Yemen, affirming that all their dreams will go unheeded. He referred to the practices of the US, France and England since the first days of the terrorist war imposed on Syria and their support to terrorism in both word and deed inside and outside the Security Council, denouncing their shelling of the Russian field hospital which was used for hospitalizing and treating the civilians liberated by the Syrian Arab army from Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists who used them as human shields. He added that those countries along with Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia has held many official and nonofficial meetings and consultations and they have proposed many subsequent draft resolutions in a way that has made the UN very far from its principles of preserving the international peace and security.
