Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Bashar al-Jaafari, said that Syria has taken many measures to alleviate the suffering of civilians in al-Ghouta, including the opening of two humanitarian corridors to ensure their safe exit.

Al-Jaafari, added at a session for UN Security Council about the situation in Syria on Monday, that the measures of the Syrian government have been impeded by the obstruction of terrorist groups and their operators, some of them members at the Security Council.

“The Syrian government has asked the General Secretariat to investigate the humanitarian situation in Raqqa, which was destroyed by the so-called international coalition led by the United States,” al-Jaafari added.

He went on to say that some of the countries that closed their embassies in Damascus are getting information from what they call open sources, which are misleading information aimed at spreading discord in the UNSC on the maintenance of international peace and security.

“We wished the UN Secretariat to provide a legal description of the presence of US forces on Syrian territory and occupation of parts of them as well as the aggression of the Turkish regime on Syria,” he added.

“Countries that support terrorism have been launching misleading propaganda campaigns as the Syrian Arab Army advances in its war on terrorism,” said al-Jaafari.
