Syria: French Foreign Ministry’s statement on Kasab an attempt to cover up terrorist acts
Syria slammed French Foreign Ministry’s statement on ongoing events in Kasab city, saying it is characteristic of France’s rash and aggressive anti-Syria policies.
Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said the recently-issued French Foreign Ministry’s statement on unfolding events in Kasab area is an attempt to cover up the acts of armed terrorist groups that have targeted, with Turkish support and firepower, several areas in Lattakia northern countryside and committed grave violations against peaceful civilians there, prompting them to flee to neighboring areas.
The source told SANA French Foreign Ministry continues – in its official statements- to cover up terrorist acts and falsify events, which proves French officials’ involvement in the bloodshed in Syria through financial, military, media and political support to armed terrorist groups.
The source expressed bewilderment at the French government’s condemnation of what it called ”bombarding Kasab” and leveling unfair accusations against Syrian government, when it should have denounced the acts of terrorist groups there that are directly aided and abetted by the Turkish government.
Among those killed in Kasab are survivors of the Ottomans’ atrocities against them at the beginning of last century, the source added.
It is a matter of regret that French government continues to rob the heritage of the French people which is built on the principles of freedom, fraternity and equality, and its disrespect for the UN Charter, international law, the ethical values of political work and the interests of the Syrian and French populations,” the ministry concluded.
