Damascus Says UN Resolution on Aid Attack on Syrian State

SyriaUNDamascus warned the United Nations Security Council against a draft resolution that would authorize cross-border aid delivery, considering the move as an attack on the Syrian state.
Syria issued its warning in a letter sent to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the 15-member Security Council.
The lawyers said that the sole purpose of the initiative is to use the UN auspices for the delivery of logistical backing to terrorists operating in the country.
“Importing aid in coordination with terrorist organizations and without consultation with the Syrian state would amount to an attack on the Syrian state,” the letter stated.
“Not only would it violate the (United Nations) charter, it would use the charter as a pretext for aggression,” the letter added.
The protest letter came as the Western powers at the Security Council are working on a draft resolution that would guarantee the enforced delivery of aid into Syria through four border crossings without approval from the Syrian government. Currently, all UN aid goes through Damascus.
However, Russia said recently that Syria has agreed to open four border crossings named in the draft text under a “far-reaching formula.”
