Syria Condemns Trump's Decision to Move US Embassy to Occupied al-Quds, Warns against Its Dangerous Repercussions

DAMASCUS, (ST)- Syria has condemned the US administration's decision to move the American Embassy to occupied al-Quds and to recognize al-Quds as the capital of the occupying entity, holding the US president and his allies in the region responsible for the dangerous repercussions of this decision.

An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement to SANA that "the Syrian Arab Republic condemns in the strongest terms the intention of the US President Donald Trump to move the American Embassy to occupied al-Quds and to recognize al-Quds as a capital of the Israeli occupation entity,"  stressing that the provocative decision constitutes a culmination of the crime of usurping Palestine, displacing the Palestinian people and establishing the Zionist expansionist entity in the heart of the Arab homeland.

 "This dangerous US step proves the US administration's disrespect of international law and intension to give up its responsibilities, as a superpower, to preserve international peace and security. The decision also indicates that Washington is the party that feeds conflicts and sedition in the world at the expense of peoples' blood in order to impose its hegemony over the entire world," the source said.    

It affirmed the urgent need to establish a new world order that respects countries' sovereignty, protects people's rights and puts an end to destructive policies and to the hypocrisy which has become a clear characteristic of the US administration and its subordinate countries.

 Some Arab regimes' subordination to US dictates greatly harm higher interests of the Arab nation

"Syria has always warned that the state of division in the Arab world and the subordination of some Arab regimes to the dictates of the US administration greatly harm the higher interests of the Arab nation and that it is time these Arab regimes realize that the United States has throughout its history been the top supporter of the Zionist entity which is the main enemy of the Arab nation. Syria also stresses that the US president couldn't have taken such a step without its alliance with some Arab regimes which have been conspiring against Syria and the Palestinian cause. " said the source.

It pointed out that Syria renews its call on the Arab masses to rise as to defend Arab rights, holy shrines and Arab interests, asserting that the Palestinian cause, which has always been the compass of the Syrian foreign policy, will continue to be alive by the will of honest and freedom-loving people in the Arab nation.

Resistance is the best response to foil enemies' schemes

"The consolidation of the resistant Arab stance is the best response to foil the enemies' schemes against the nation and to end the farce called normalization of some Arab regimes with the Zionist entity that serves only the enemy's interests and schemes in the region," the source concluded.
