In an exclusive interview to the Media Office of the Syrian National Coalition, spokesperson for the Coalition Louay Safi considered the non – binding Presidential statement issued by the United Nations Security Council, “allows the regime opportunities for evasion of international conventions and international laws that condemn the practices of Bashar al-Assad against civilians,” pointing out that “the reaction of the regime’s Ambassador Bashar al Jaafari to the statement considering it a violation of national sovereignty, means that the regime will prevent the arrival of humanitarian aid through channels not under its control under the pretext of not violating national sovereignty.” He added, “that this means the aid that the Assad government would take would be directed to support its thugs in areas under its control.” Based on this the spokesperson for the Coalition demanded from organizations of the United Nations and the Red Cross and Crescent not to deliver aid to any institution under the control of Assad government, civilian or governmental. He explained that “this aid will go to pro regime areas, so all aid sent to the besieged areas must be delivered through international organizations to make sure they are delivered to the rightful owners.” It should be noted that the Syrian National Coalition called on the UN Security Council in a press statement yesterday, “to take urgent and practical steps to press Bashar Assad’s regime to facilitate humanitarian relief operations and to ensure safe passage for international medical relief workers.” This comes after the issuance of a Presidential statement by the Security Council condemning the human rights violations and continuous breaches of international law” by the ruling regime in Syria. The Syrian National Coalition considered the Assad regime to be the “main reason for the aggravation of the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria during the previous period”, according to reports by organizations and international commissions of inquiry. The Coalition called for international relief organizations in a statement yesterday,” to enter Moadamiat al Shaam to deliver the humanitarian needs of the residents immediately, and to evacuate hundreds of starving people at risk of death due to the lack of food.” This comes especially after the Assad regime’s intensification of systematic siege and starvation of the city’s residents, which has recently claimed the lives of 4 women and 3 children. In a Coalition press statement it was indicated that “the water in the district is no longer fit for drinking due to the direct bombardment of artesian wells and water tanks, the main source of nutrition for the district.” The Coalition praised the Presidential statement by the Security Council, expressing hope that “this statement was the beginning of a clear international position against the systematic killing practiced by the regime in Syria.” The Coalition called on the Security Council to “take immediate and practical steps for a political transition towards democracy based on the Geneva statement.
