U.N condemns Syrian state aggression on its citizens
The latest resolution passed by United Nations General Assembly has criticized Syrian hostilities on its own people. The European countries which voted in favour
of the resolution such as Britain, France and Germany have accused Syria of inciting civil war and also used harsh words to criticize the Syrian government which is not giving up its power despite a massive movement of freedom in the Arab state.
The resolution itself states, “Strongly condemns the continued grave and systematic human rights violations by the Syrian authorities,” highlighting the “arbitrary
executions” and “persecution” of protesters and human rights defenders.”
The latest resolution also calls on the Syrian government to halt the violence in Syria and reach a peaceful conclusion to the matter in question. Last month in United
Nations Security Council, Russia and China practiced their veto powers as they stopped a resolution which condemned Assad’s governmental crackdown on protestors in Syria, a crackdown which has resulted in over 3000 casualties.
United Kingdom’s ambassador to the United Nations stated in his latest remarks to UN General assembly, “The international community cannot remain silent” The French
ambassador added to the opinions of his UK ally as he stated that UN condemnation on Syria was now a matter of urgency. He said, “It is urgent because it is a situation that is deteriorating constantly, “Syria has “rejected” the Arab League plan and the number
of victims is increasing”
On the other hand, Syrian ambassador defended his country’s stance on the issue as he said that the European nations were a part of the problem because they were
waging a political, diplomatic and media war on Syrian people. He added, “How can you believe they are not interfering when they are inciting civil war? We will not let the former colonial powers interfere in our affairs again.” Ambassadors from Iran, North
Korea, Venezuela and Cuba supported the Syrian cause.
