In regard to the Security Council draft press statement on the situation in the North-West of Syria
We did not find it possible to support in the Security Council the draft statement for the press on the situation in the North-West of the SAR, proposed by the informal penholders of Syrian humanitarian dossier (Belgium, Germany, Kuwait).
We do not agree that the situation in the North-West can be viewed separately from situation in other regions. Besides, the document under consideration absolutely ignored the fact that Idlib was controlled by terrorist group ‘Hayat Tahrir al-Sham'.
We regret that our colleagues in the Security Council preferred to stick to the biased approach towards what is going on in Syria. The so called humanitarian ‘troika’ showed no worries when the illegal coalition that is deployed in Syria was razing Hajin and Baghouz down to the ground. The ‘liberated’ Raqqa is still lying in ruins.
