Al-Moallem Stresses to Amos: US, EU Sanctions on Syria Responsible for Syrians' Sufferings 

DAMASCUS, (SANA) – Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem, on Saturday stressed that the sanctions imposed by the US and EU countries on Syria are responsible for the sufferings of the Syrian people, calling upon the UN to condemn these sanctions and urge these countries to cancel them.

Al-Moallem's remarks came during a meeting with the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Valerie Amos.

The two sides expressed relief over the humanitarian response plan in Syria, which is a positive expression of the standing cooperation between Syria and the UN.

Minister al-Moallem clarified that Syria appreciates the efforts exerted by the UN offices in the state, as he also urged the UN official to expand the Organization's cooperation to include the fields of reconstructing and rehabilitating the infrastructure, such as hospitals and others, which have been destroyed by the armed terrorist groups.

He expressed the Syrian government's desire to coordinate with the UN to deliver humanitarian aid to those affected due to the attacks of the armed terrorist groups on the public and private properties.

For her part, Amos expressed high appreciation of the Syrian government's efforts in its humanitarian work and the facilitations it provides to the tasks of the UN office, as she also stressed that her Damascus office will continue to provide humanitarian aid in coordination with the Syrian government.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Foreign Minister, Dr. Fayssal Mikdad, Director of International Organizations and Conferences Department at the Ministry and the delegation accompanying Amos.

Amos Meets Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of State for National Reconciliation Affairs

Later, Minister of Social Affairs and Labor, Jassim Mohammad Zakarya, met with Amos and discussed with her the standing cooperation mechanisms between the government and the UN organizations working in the humanitarian domain.


Minister Zakarya told the journalists following the meeting that the talks touched upon the efforts exerted by the Higher Relief Committee and its branches in the provinces in terms of coordinating the relief and humanitarian efforts on the local and external levels, in addition to means of overcoming the obstacles that hinder the delivery of aid to the affected citizens inside and outside the temporary shelter centers.

The Minister added that he also reviewed the financial aid provided directly by the government to the NGOs to carry out their duties towards the affected families, calling upon the UN humanitarian bodies to put more efforts to help the Syrians who were forced to leave the country fleeing the armed terrorist groups.

The UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator also held a meeting with Minister of State for the National Reconciliation Affairs, Ali Haidar, the humanitarian response plan in Syria and the role played by the international organizations in this regard.


"The international organizations have not offered what is required so far, and they are still exploiting the humanitarian aid issue for political purposes," Haidar said in a statement to the journalists following the meeting.

He called upon these organizations to act with credibility in providing aid to the Syrian people via the government and the civil organizations working in the field of relief.

Syria: 'Opposition' and islamists struggling for Power


On Monday November 19, 2012, Syria's Islamists rejected the country's so called 'new Western-backed opposition coalition' and unilaterally declared an Islamic state.

That is hardly to belief.

The West is giving them money and weapons to gain power because of the U.S. and its allies want full control over the arabian countries in the Middle East.

Photo: Gamal Abdel Nasser Hussein (Arabic: جمال عبد الناصر حسين‎, ). He was the second President of Egypt from 1956 until his death. A colonel in the Egyptian army, Nasser led the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 along with Muhammad Naguib, the first president, which overthrew the monarchy of Egypt and Sudan, and heralded a new period of modernization, and socialist reform in Egypt together with a profound advancement of pan-Arab nationalism, including a short-lived union with Syria. Under his leadership, Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal Company and came to play a central role in anti-imperialist efforts in the Arab World and Africa. The imposed ending to the Suez Crisis made him a hero throughout the Arab world. He was also instrumental in the establishment of the international Non-Aligned Movement. He is well known for his nationalist policies and version of pan-Arabism, also referred to as Nasserism, which won a great following in the Arab World during the 1950s and 1960s. Although his status as "leader of the Arabs" was badly damaged by the Israeli victory over the Arab armies in the Six-Day War, as well as Egypt's failure to win the subsequent War of Attrition against Israel, many in the general Arab population still view Nasser as a symbol of Arab dignity and freedom.



Western powers, western-backed terrorists and Islamists are not fighting for the welfare of the Syrian people but for the full control and power over the Syrian people   

1) Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

2) British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

3) An official source told a SANA reporter that the seized arms included Nato sniper rifles, machineguns, hunting rifles, explosive devices of various weights, devices for remote control detonation and an amount of batteries and electrical wires.

4) The Belgian State Security "has not confirmed" the rumor that Belgian jihadists are fighting in Syria. The newspapers 'Het Belang van Limburg' and 'Gazet van Antwerpen' argued the opposite: "The State Security confirmed the presence of Belgian terrorists in Syria".  Originally the Flemish newspapers relied on a report by Reuters, dated July 31th 2012, citing statements from "several rebel commanders in the north-west Syria," according to which "Muslims in Great Britain, Belgium and the United States had joined the Free Syrian Army (SLA)". On July 13th, Reuters pointed out a flood "of thousands of assault rifles Belgian FN FAL was in the hands of the rebels".  In its annual reports, the Belgian State Security explains how and why she follows people attracted by fighting abroad: there was attention for Iraq, then, from 2010, to the movement towards Pakistan-Afghanistan border area; Finally, most recently, to new locations: "If the Afghan-Pakistan area, more than Iraq, was still popular in 2010 with the majority of volunteers for jihad", the Belgian State Security wrote in his latest report, "some of them began to plot their way to Yemen, Somalia and the Caucasus". And Syria now? "Obviously. Where they are beaten, those who return and who actually participated in the fighting have gained knowledge on how to handle weapons, strategy and tactics of war," noted the Belgian State Security yesterday. "This is the central reason for the Belgian concern".  Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium. 

5) The Swiss Authorities announced that they are investigating into information published by Sonntags Zeitung newspaper about hand grenades used by armed terrorist groups in Syria.

6) The weapons and military equipment recently discovered and seized by the Syrian Army in Idlib province proves NATO's arms and logistic support for terrorists in Syria.

7) The seized weapons in Salqain district in Idlib included 7.26 guns along with other weapons as well as boxes of gunshots with the words "NATO BALL" carved on them.

8) The Lebanese army intelligence has seized a large quantity of wea Lutfallah II container pons hidden inside cars aboard an Italian ship at Tripoli port, north of Lebanon, Lebanese security sources told Al-Manar TV.

9) This comes just days after the Lebanese Army Marines confiscated Lutfallah II arms shipment off the Lebanese port of Batoun while it was carrying 300,000 pounds of weapons within three containers. Reports said the cargo ship, which was flying the flag of Sierra-Leone, had left Libya and was bound to Syria.

10) Lebanese terrorist Mohammad Hussein Fares confessed to participating in smuggling weapons, militants and journalists into Syria and committing terrorists acts against Syrians.

11) Fares said that they smuggled assault rifles, RPG rounds, sniper rifles, LAW missiles, machineguns and cases of ammo, delivering them to Amoun, with al-Jarban coming later to distribute them among terrorists.

12) US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are arming AL-QAEDA Terrorists to commit Terrorism in Syria

13) Over 30,000 various weapons have been channelled to Syria since unrest flared up there in April last year, Amin Khteit says. The overall amount of explosives makes up 300 tons. The deliveries were made by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They depend on the United States, which is making every effort to overpower Syria.

14) The authorities seized weapons smuggled from Turkey in Tal Abyad area on the Syrian-Turkish borders in Raqqa countryside.

15) A Turkish parliamentarian has stressed that Turkish ambulances are transporting weapons to terrorist groups in Syria, expressing their opposition to Ankara's policies on the Syrian case...

The U.S. and its allies (and Israel) are trying to silence the press by bombing journalists and blocking News Agencies.

The website of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA is regularly blocked by Washington that doesn't want a political solution and doesn't stop its financial and military aid to terrorist groups. C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. Weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries to Syria.

On May 7, 1999, NATO fired 3 missiles from different angles to attack the Embassy of China in Yugoslavia, which killed 3 Chinese journalists and injured more than 20. The building of the embassy was seriously damaged. U.S. officials and NATO said the attack on the Chinese Embassy was "a mistake" based on "faulty information".
