Al Ja'fari:Syria demands that security council adopt a draft resolution that compels member countries to coordinate and fight terrorism and for foreign terrorists to be returned to their countries

Mr. President,

A few days ago, specifically on August 31, 2020, the Security Council voted on a draft resolution on combating terrorism. This draft resolution was supposed to contribute to addressing one of the weaknesses and close an important gap in this field by calling on Member States of our international organization to repatriate, prosecute or rehabilitate their nationals of "terrorists without borders" or what some like to call "foreign terrorist fighters", and ridding the countries in which these terrorists are active of their evils and crimes.

Unfortunately, the negotiation process on that draft resolution confirmed that some European countries represented in this Council have adhered to their selfish and irresponsible position of rejecting to repatriate and hold accountable their nationals of hardened terrorists. These countries have also persisted in their unethical attempts to evade their relevant responsibilities, to our great dissatisfaction. It is well known to everyone that my country, Syria, has been targeted over the past years by a brutal terrorist war in which Governments of known countries have recruited foreign terrorist fighters and provided them with various forms of support, and facilitated their infiltration into my country mainly through our common borders with Turkey to destabilize Syria's security and stability and undermine its sovereignty, territorial unity and integrity, and its role in the region, and to pave the way for the perpetration of acts of aggression and occupation under the delusional pretext of fighting ISIS. How can someone claim to be fighting ISIS when it was he who made it?

Mr. President,

My Delegation reiterates its condemnation and categorical rejection of the selective approach adopted by the Governments of some Member States regarding the issue of confronting the threat posed by terrorism to international peace and security. These very same Governments consider terrorism a legitimate tool in which to invest as long as it does not target their countries, and describe the terrorists as a "moderate armed Syrian opposition", "non-state armed groups,” "revolutionaries", "jihadists" or “freedom fighters” who do not pose any threat to peace and security for any country or region of the whole world, provided that they never think of returning to their countries of origin to continue spreading democracy and human rights there......
Consequently, Western countries that have been consistently flooding some poor and developing countries with their nuclear and non-nuclear waste to protect their local environment from pollution are bent on flooding certain countries with their human waste of terrorists, extremists, mercenaries and murderers after they used them to target certain countries, including my own.

What confirms the relevance of what we say is that some Western Governments still refuse to repatriate their terrorists,

together with their families and children -and here we are talking about 72,000 thousand terrorists and future terrorists located in one camp under the supervision of the American occupation forces and their proxy separatist militias-.They are also taking illegal and illegitimate measures to evade their responsibility for and duties toward their nationals including repatriating, prosecuting, or rehabilitating them. We have seen during the past years, a British effort, for example, but not limited to, to revoke the nationality of British terrorists operating in my country, if then even dare think of going back to the UK, and the same thing happened in other countries. The Belgian Government- which shares with Germany holding the so-called humanitarian pen and claims to be concerned about the humanitarian situation in my country - refused to take back the Belgian wives of ISIS fighters, and was content with expressing its readiness to receive children exclusively under the age of ten, despite the decisions issued by the Belgian judiciary demanding that children not be separated from their mothers. What hypocrisy is this?


Mr. President,

In the reports of the Secretary-General and the reports of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team of the Security Council committee established pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999), the United Nations confirmed the existence of tens of thousands of terrorist fighters who came to my country from more than a hundred Member States. The International Counter-Terrorism Center in The Hague indicated, years ago, that there are around 4300 European terrorists fighting in Syria and Iraq, among them 2838 terrorists from France, Britain, Belgium and Germany, meaning more than 700 terrorists for each of the four countries that I mentioned, all of which are currently Members of the Security Council and NATO. Of course, these numbers have been manipulated and reduced to cover up the practices of the Governments of the four countries. Our statistics, as the Syrian Government, are much more than that.

My Delegation reaffirms that the success of any political solution of the crisis, restoring security and stability to the entirety of the Syrian Arab Republic, and improving the humanitarian situation demands combatting terrorism and that the concerned Governments repatriate their cannibalistic from Idlib, which is controlled by Al-Nusra Front and its affiliated multi-labeled and multi-faceted entities. These Governments must also withdraw their monsters from Al-Hol Camp that is run by American occupation forces and their affiliated separatist militias and avoid making this issue the subject of barter or suspicious deals aimed at trying to legitimize or recognize those militias involved in smuggling some ISIS terrorists or children to neighboring countries, as happened a few days ago when more than /25/ children were suffocated and poisoned after consuming excessive doses of sleeping drugs during preparations to smuggle them through water tanks and boxes out of Al-Hol camp. Of course, we did not hear about this crime in any briefing to this council or in the Western media.

I do not want to name the Western countries and others that paid huge sums of money to the armed separatist militias in exchange for having back some children or terrorists, in addition to the political statements they issued in favor of these militias.
