During a regular session of the UN Security Council, the Syrian delegate stated that Western countries must answer for the criminal acts committed against their people; He also stressed that the international organization is in charge of curbing war crimes and enforcing the corresponding resolutions.

In this sense, the entity urged the UN Security Council to investigate the genocidal actions of the international coalition in the Syrian cities of Raqa and Al-Baghouz, bombed on April 19, causing numerous deaths and infrastructural damage.

“These crimes committed by the so-called international coalition led by the US, in the city of Raqqa and the town of Deir Ezzor province in the countryside, led to the death of thousands of innocent people, including women and children, and the destruction of property, public and private centers, health and education institutions,” the diplomat reaffirmed.

He also added that Western nations ignore the dire consequences of the hostile policy and the illegal and inhumane unilateral coercive measures against Syria, which generate the fall of economic and development rates, of investments; as well as commercial exchanges and the increase in inflation, among other consequences.

It is worth emphasizing that the policy implemented against the Syrian people prevents the importation of food, medicine and other essential products into that country; as well as materials for agricultural and industrial production, which threatens food security levels.

“The occupation will end no matter how long it takes, and this applies to the illegal presence of US and Turkish forces in northeastern and northwestern Syria, and to the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Golan,” the Syrian representative to the UN said.
