The Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry has criticized Saudi Arabia over lack of genuine measures to stop instigation of terrorism in Syria.

On Saturday, in two letters addressed to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and President of UN Security Council Sylvie Lucas on Saudi Arabia's subversive role in Syria, the ministry referred to a raft of counter-terrorism legislations issued by the Saudi regime in a make-believe attempt to convince the international community of its involvement in a counter-terrorism drive.

Saudi Arabia thinks that its USD 100 million contribution to finance the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Center will absolve it of legal and ethical responsibility for the loss of thousands of lives, and will cover up millions of dollars it pumped to support terrorist groups in Syria and elsewhere in the world, read the letters.

The letters indicated that "combating terrorism requires that words match actions, i.e. that legislations are issued and put into force. Consequently, the Saudi regime by not taking real measures to stop instigation of terrorism and deter the fitna-mongers (plotters) who issued calls for Jihad in Syria and elsewhere in the world in answer to the call of al-Qaeda leader, Ayman al-Zawaheri in October 2013 reveal these laws to be grossly lacking credibility."

Saudi Arabia continues to spread Wahabi thought which underpins the crimes committed by radical militants in Syria where the danger lies, the Syrian ministry pointed out.

"The evil triggered by Wahabi thought had not remained confined to Syria but boomeranged on all strata of Saudi society,'' the letters added. "It is therefore not odd that thousands of Saudis, including university professors, doctors, engineers and employees have embraced the al-Qaeda-linked Wahabi thought due to the regime's efforts to foster it in the society."

Blinded by mass media and social networks oversupplied with Wahabi indoctrination, those people have abandoned their families, lives and future to come to Syria to kill with impunity, said the ministry.

The ministry said that Syria will supply the United Nations Security Council and the relevant counter-terrorism committees with the IDs of 228 Saudi terrorists who got killed in Syria.

The letters dismissed Saudi vows to punish those involved in combat operations in Syria upon their return as "cheap media propaganda" that ought to be replaced by real measures.

A recent British defense study showed that about 100,000 militants, fragmented into 1,000 groups, are fighting in Syria against the government and people. Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011.
