Draft resolution proposed by Liechtenstein and Qatar is illegitimate and undermines solution prospects: Syria

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari said the draft resolution proposed by Liechtenstein and Qatar that calls for “laying out a mechanism for accountability for war crimes in Syria” proves the hypocrisy and the huge gap between policy and practice with regard to respecting the UN Charter and the sovereignty of the member states, and undermines the opportunities of any political solution in Syria.

In a statement delivered at a UN General Assembly session on Wednesday during discussions of the item titled “prevention of armed conflict”, al-Jaafari described this move by Liechtenstein as “illegitimate” and “dishonest”, adding that it outrageously violates Paragraph 7 of Article 2 of the UN Charter, SANA reported.

He reviewed some of the notes which undermines this draft resolution and discloses the intentions of those who proposed it, mentioning mainly that it is not in the power of the General Assembly to propose any recommendation about a conflict discussion undertaken by the Security Council unless it is requested to.

Al-Jaafari added that establishing such a mechanism, if to be ever done by the General Assembly, entails a mandate by the UN Secretary General after taking permission from the state concerned exclusively, affirming that establishing such a mechanism is a blatant interference in the internal affairs of a UN member state.

He continued as saying that establishing that mechanism at this very critical stage of the crisis in Syria would also undermine the national reconciliation measures adopted by the Syrian government and would directly jeopardize the prospects of the political solution in Syria which all the relevant resolutions of the Security Council stressed that it must be led by the Syrians themselves.

Al-Jaafari indicated that the draft resolution reflects the agendas of some countries which seek to politicize that mechanism and to make it a tool for practicing a political revenge through prolonging the crisis in Syria..........
