UN anti-Syria resolution will fail to restore security

Iran’s Ambassador to UN Mohammad Khazaei

The Iranian ambassador to the UN has criticized the UN General Assembly resolution against Syria, arguing that it will not contribute to the restoration of peace and security in the country.

On the case of Syria, any attempt to interfere in the Syrian internal affairs would only lead to the deepening of political and social crises, Mohammad Khazaei told a UN General Assembly meeting late Thursday.

He said that the persistence of chaos in Syria will lead to instability in the Middle East, adding that mounting violence in the region will serve the interests of Israel, but harm the interests of Muslims and the Arab world.

At a time when all must work to come up with a comprehensive, effective and viable solution to end the Syria crisis peacefully, this resolution, in its present form, will not help us achieve that goal, Khazaei added.

The Iranian envoy said that the resolution would not work since it failed to take into consideration the real situation in the Middle East and in particular Syria.

He said that the resolution’s failure to tackle the issue of armed groups in Syria would result in the persistence of violence and terrorism in the country, and pointed out that it should be clarified which sources funnel weapons to armed groups in Syria.

The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday adopted an Arab League-sponsored resolution on Syria for what it calls the government's crackdown on opposition protests.

137 members of the UN voted in favor of the resolution while 12 members including Iran, Russia and China voted against the measure.

The non-binding resolution was drafted by the Arab League and backed by the United States and Britain.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. The government blames ''outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups'' for the violence, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad. The West and the opposition claim the government is behind the killings of protesters.
