Terrorist Groups Backing Countries Responsible for War on Syria

 CARACAS,(ST) _ "  Syria is subjected to a war of aggression for which responsible are  states that support terrorist gangs which shed blood  the Syrian blood," stressed Venezuelan  researcher and political analyst Raymond Qabshi, reiterating Venezuela's support to Syria in the face of this aggression.

 In a televised interview ,Qabshi who was an advisor of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez criticized the report of the UN  Human Rights Council on Syria, adding that the whole world is aware that Syria is not suffering a  civil war as claimed by the report,  rather is subject to an aggressive terrorist war, funded  and contributed by many countries to the extent  that the Australian Foreign ministry  acknowledged that one  hundred Australian terrorists involved in this war, which  carried out by terrorist gangs against Syria, claiming the lives  of thousands of innocent people and destroyed churches ,mosques, universities, orphanages and the infrastructure.

He expressed his conviction  that Syria is laying  the foundation for a new world order , away  from the dominance of the imperialist powers and terrorist gangs and in  the event of her success - and will succeed-  China, Russia, India, South Africa and Brazil  will win , besides all  countries that maintain national sovereignty , oil and national wealth.

He reiterated the right of Syria to defend itself and its citizens against this terrorist war and held the UN and its organizations , in light of the international law and the  humanitarian law, responsible for  the  silence on financiers of the  terrorist war against Syria, particularly the neighboring countries . "The UN was created to bring peace and deal with  crises , not to punish countries", he added, noting that  that sanctions imposed on Syria violate the international law.

He went on that the solution in Syria is in the hands of the Syrian people alone, adding that the UN plays an  impediment  role in Syria,  and together with the Arab League, turned to a platform for imperialist powers, which wanted to use the International  organizations for attacking  Syria, the same as  happened in Iraq and Libya, but failed, thanks to the positive  Russian and Chinese role.
