Syria sends letters to UN on Saudi-backed terrorism

Syria’s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry has sent two identical letters to the head of the UN Security Council and the UN Secretary-General on the terrorist acts of the armed terrorist groups and the Saudi involvement in supporting these acts.

The Ministry said on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia has sponsored an armistice among the armed terrorist groups of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), al-Mujahiden Army, al-Nusra Front and other terrorist groups in an attempt to foil the political solution to the crisis in Syria.

The Ministry stressed that this act reveals Saudi Arabia’s insistence on adherence to violence and terrorism, adding that Saudi Arabia has sought to provide all financial, military and logistic capabilities as to unify the armed terrorist groups against the Syrian state.

The statement stipulated that the Saudi regime has tasked Saudi Sheikh Abdullah Bin Sulieman al-Mohaisany, who is one of the religious source, with launching an initiative called “nation’s initiative” on reaching an immediate armistice among all terrorist groups in all the Syrian areas.

The initiative was based on consultations with many of so-called “nation’s scholars”, including Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was called by Sheikh al-Mohaisany’s initiative as the “wise man of the nation”.

The Ministry said that the ISIL responded to the initiative, which was planned by the Saudi authorities, along with Abu Mohammad al-Joulani, leader of al-Nusra Front and the terrorist groups of “al-Mujahiden Army” and the so-called “Islamic Front”.

The Ministry stressed that the patronage of the Saudi authorities to this initiative and its harmony with the calls of leader of Al-Qaeda for unifying the terrorist groups which are supported and backed by Saudi Arabia and the Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups in Syria indicates that the role of Saudi Arabia has moved from the stage of secret support to public support to Al-Qaeda and its affiliated terrorist groups.

The Ministry said that the Syrian government calls on the UN Security Council’s sub-committees charged with combating terrorism to list the Saudi-backed militants as terrorist entities with links to Al-Qaeda.

It highlighted that Syria also asks for activating the relevant UN Security Council resolution regarding the importance of international cooperation in combating terrorism in all means through preventing Saudis from providing any kind of overt or covert support to the groups.

The Ministry concluded its messages by saying that Syria highlights that “Not confronting terrorism could foil the ongoing efforts to achieve a political solution and will cause terrorism to spread to other countries, particularly the neighboring countries that are providing training, havens and safe crossing for terrorists to enter Syria through their lands.”
