Damascus, SANA_ Syria strongly condemned the statements issued by the U.S. and French foreign ministries on Syria as a “blatant violation of UN principles on respecting the sovereignty of states and non-interference in their internal affairs,” an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said.
The source stressed, in statement to SANA, that the U.S. and French ministries’ statements prove once again the two states’ alliance with the armed terrorist groups as they constitute an attempt to raise terrorist groups’ morale after the successive defeats they are facing by the Syrian Arab Army.
The source added that these statements re-affirm the falsity and hypocrisy of these two states’ officials.
“Such statements contradict with the principles and values they are calling for, on top of which that people of a country are the source of legitimacy, and not the content expressed by this state or that, and that occurs due to the residual of the colonialist ideology and the mentality of hegemony, arrogance and exclusiveness, which are the main reason for tensions in the world.”
The source concluded by saying “The Syrian Arab people, in their daily confronting of the regionally and internationally-backed takfiri terrorism, are more adhered to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria as well as its national independent decision.
