Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN Office at Geneva (UNOG), Dr. Fayssal al-Hamwi, stressed that the armed terrorist groups are still violating the plan of UN Envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, with the support of some regional countries and the United States of America.
Dr. al-Hamwi's remarks came in response to the High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay's allegations and some states' representatives that support the armed terrorist groups in Syria during the 20th meeting of the Human Rights Council held in Geneva on Monday.
Dr. al-Hamwi expressed the Syrian delegation's disapproval of the biased and subjective statements made by the High Commissioner based on some provocative media reports.
On Pillay's allegations that the UN Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) did not manage to reach some areas in Syria, Dr. al-Hamwi pointed out that the good standing cooperation between the international observers and the Syrian Government was certified by the head of the mission who affirmed that his team was moving freely in the country.
Dr. al-Hamwi also refuted the allegations of the representatives of Qatar, Libya and the USA about the casualties in Syria, pointing out that these countries are supplying the armed gangs with weapons and money.
For his part, Russia's representative stressed the importance of solving the crisis in Syria through peaceful means, calling for supporting Annan's plan.
