Violation of Syrian Territory

Ex-Minister: Syria to Give Firm Response to Violation of Territorial Integrity by Turkey

19 August 2015.

Former Syrian Information Minister Mehdi Dakhlallah warned against Turkey's plot to create a buffer zone in Northern Syria, and vowed the Damascus government's crushing response to any such violation of its sovereignty.

"Syria will react resolutely to any foreign intervention in accordance with the international law; therefore any violation of Syria's sovereignty will face the country's firm response," Dakhlallah told FNA on Wednesday.

He reiterated that Turkey supports the terrorist groups in its neighboring countries, including Iraq and Syria, and said, "The Ankara government's support for the terrorists will soon backfire."

On Tuesday, a senior Syrian legislator blasted Turkey for implementing the US and its allies' disintegration plots against the regional states, and said Syria will never allow a buffer zone on its soil.

"The plan is a prelude to disintegrate a country which enjoys an independent sovereignty and therefore, Syria will never allow its implementation and we urge resistance inside Syria and the region against this ominous plot of the westerners," Maria Sa'adah told FNA.

She referred to the recent remarks by Leader of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group Seyed Hassan Nasrallah on the necessity for resistance against the US and Israeli plots to disintegrate the region, and said Tehran and Moscow are also strong opponents to such plots and have always underlined the necessity for safeguarding Syria's territorial integrity.

"Of course, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has also stressed that the enemies' plots to disintegrate the country have proved futile given the great victories that the Syrian army has gained (against the terrorists)," Sa'adah said.

Her remarks came after certain media reports claiming that the Turkish forces are ready for military intervention in Syria under the pretext of creating a buffer zone to protect the Turkish borders against the threat of the terrorist groups.

In October, Syria's Foreign Ministry rejected foreign powers' talk about imposing a buffer zone on Syrian soil.

"The Turkish attempts to establish a buffer zone on the Syrian soil is a flagrant violation to the charters of the UN and international law," the ministry said in a statement.

It added that "Syria totally rejects the establishment of a buffer zone on any part of its terrain under any pretext and also rejects the foreign military intervention on its soil".

The ministry stressed that the Syrian government would take all necessary measures to protect its national sovereignty and the unity of its territories after consulting with other countries.

The statement came as Turkey had been floating the idea of setting up a buffer zone on the Syrian side of the borders under many pretexts, mainly to solve the issue of the Syrian refugees on Turkish soil.

Russia Supports Assad

Opposition Politician: Russia Not to Cease Support for Assad Government

19 August 2015.

A Syrian opposition politician underlined that the Russian government will continue supporting President Bashar Assad's government.

"Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has reiterated that his country's stances have not changed and Moscow will continue supporting the legitimacy of President Assad's government that has been achieved through the ballot box," Noufel Noufel, the secretary-general of Syria's Democratic Vanguard Party (Al-Talia'a Democratic Party), told FNA on Wednesday.

He underlined that the pro-West militant groups fighting against the Syrian government are seeking to stir chaos in Syria to fulfill the western intelligence services' orders.

Noufel reiterated that Russia's agreement with the UN peace plan for Syria does not mean that Moscow's stance on Assad's government has changed; it, rather, means that supporters of Syria back up conditional political solutions to the Syrian crisis.

On June 26, Russian President Vladimir Putin had confirmed in a telephone conversation with US President Barack Obama Russia’s position on settling the crisis in Syria with participation of President Bashar Assad.

Meantime, A Russian political expert disclosed that senior officials from Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan and Egypt are highly likely to visit Moscow next week to discuss the crisis in Syria.

Yury Barmin, a political analyst of Russia Direct Research Institute, said that the concurrence of the visits by senior officials from Iran and other regional countries to Moscow has given rise to speculations that they might take part in multilateral talks on regional crises.

The Russian media had reported that Saudi King Salman would travel to Moscow on August 25.

The Arabic-language Cairo-based Al-Ahram newspaper also wrote that Egyptian President Abdul Fatah al-Sissi will also travel to Russia next Wednesday.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir also visited Moscow last week to discuss Syria with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.

During talks with al-Jubeir, Lavrov reiterated that Russia will not accept that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to be put aside from the peace talks in the war-stricken country.

The Russian foreign minister, however, said that Moscow and Riyadh had agreed on practical steps to facilitate the political process in Syria.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was also in Moscow just last week.
