The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia expressed its concern over the continued intervention by the Iranian-backed militias and the war crimes they are committing in Syria. The Kingdom called upon the international community to stand up firmly “to the Iranian interference and its militias which act for a demographic change, sectarianism and ethnic cleansing in Syria.”
Abdulrahman Alahmed, Head of the Saudi Mission to the European Union, reiterated the Kingdom’s commitment to “preserving the unity and territorial integrity of Syria and to preserve its security and military institutions.”
Alahmed was speaking during the conference on Supporting the future of Syria and the Region held in Brussels on Wednesday with the participation of representatives of more than 70 countries as well as regional and international organizations.
Alahmed added that the Kingdom expresses “its concern towards the continued systematic forced people displacements aiming to achieve a demographic change in some Syrian areas, and stresses the relevant bodies in the United Nations and the Humanitarian Organizations to take the necessary measures to stop such operations.”
Moreover, Alahmed stressed “the importance of sanctioning perpetrators of war crimes in Syria.”
“The Kingdom hopes the implementation of agreements supported by international resolutions regarding the ceasefire, delivering the humanitarian aids, and the release of detainees and abductees by the regime and its militias.”
Alahmed reaffirmed the Kingdom’s support “to the efforts of the Special Envoy of the United Nations General Secretary Mr. Staffan De Mistura, to find a political and peaceful solution, excluding Assad, and to proceed with the negotiations process between the Syrian parties in Geneva towards further progress to find solutions based upon Geneva conference (1) and the U.N. resolution 2254 and the international resolutions in this regard.”
Alahmed concluded his remarks by stressing that “it is wrong to shorten the Syrian crisis in its human aspect although it is a painful, tragic and unprecedented appearance, but the ugliest aspect is the survival of the Syrian regime and its persistence in its criminal approach.” (Source: Syrian Coalition Media’s Department + Agencies)
