Iran raps UNGA for anti-Syria resolution

NEW YORK, Nov. 21 (MNA) – The recent General Assembly anti-Syria resolution was vehemently criticized by Iran’s senior UN diplomat.

The latest UNGA resolution was a gift to terrorists in order to weaken the Syrian resistance front, said Gholam Hossein Dehghani, Iran’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations.

"It is a blemish to the repute of the United Nations and the General Assembly," Dehghani described the Saudi-sponsored non-binding draft resolution which was ratified on Thursday after Saudi regime pushed the UN General Assembly's human rights committee to condemn Iranian and Russian anti-terrorism efforts in Syria.

During the Thursday meeting of General Assembly, the Saudi representative, who was the main advocate of the draft, accused Damascus of being in charge of the murders in Syria. The Syrian representative reacted to claims and called them blind to the roots of crisis in Syria.

The Syrian diplomat named Saudi and Qatari regimes the main supporters of the terrorists in Syria who are also assisted by Turkey to massacre racial and religious minorities who are not favored by Ankara.

"It is a joke that the Saudi regime that is the most oppressing autocracy in the region and has never let its citizens vote is commenting on human rights status," said Bashar Jaafari the Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations Headquarters in New York.   

Iran's representative also justified Iranian contribution to Syria’s struggle with terrorism as he said that the Iranian defense staff in Syria are only on a consultation mission following the official call for assistance by the Syrian government.    

"Were not it for the role played by Iran and its allies, today more cities would be under the black flag of the ISIL, and that is why these kinds of resolutions are fabricated to revenge," underlined Dehghani.
