Mikdad: Political Program Revealed Truth of Those Who Talk about Peaceful Solutions
Jan 15, 2013
DAMASCUS, (SANA) – Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Dr. Fayssal Mikdad, stressed yesterday Monday that the political program to solve the crisis in Syria which was presented by President Bashar al-Assad has revealed the truth of those who were talking about peaceful solutions in Syria and showed that they support only terrorism and killing innocent Syrians.
In a statement, Dr. Mikdad said that the big opportunity to solve the crisis is available if the United Nations practically wanted to contribute to a peaceful solution, and this opportunity is represented in the clear Syrian political program which paved the way for the Syrian people to shape their future to reflect the opinion of the majority of the Syrians and the international community.
He clarified that the political program is a genuine initiative aimed primarily at starting a political process to end the standing situation and make the opinion of the Syrians and the elections box the place where issues related to governing Syria are settled.
He added that the UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, after his recent meeting in Geneva talked on behalf of Russia and the United States and said that they agreed on a political solution which is the essence of the Syrian program which is based on the UN Charter, the international legitimacy principles, the UN Security Council resolutions and Geneva Statement and the interest of the Syrian people in the first place.
Mikdad called for adding Turkey to the states which support terrorism after it has changed the camps which it made on the pretext of receiving refugees into training camps for terrorists.
He pointed out that the political work has not stopped in Syria since the beginning of the crisis, adding that those who want to destroy Syria stand behind the continuation of violence.
He called on all Syrians for dialogue because the states which are offering money and weapons aim to kill the Syrian people and remove Syria from the map to serve the best interests of Syria's enemies.
