Damascus, SANA

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry condemned on Friday Turkey’s repeated crimes and attacks against the Syrian people and violations of the sanctity and unity of Syria’s territory.

The condemnation was expressed in two letters sent to the UN secretary-general and the UN Security Council president calling on them to make Turkey stop its violations against Syria and oblige it to implement the UNSC’s resolutions related to combating terrorism.

These attacks, the Ministry said, came in continuation of the Turkish regime’s aggression on Syria for more than five years, which includes providing various forms of military, material and logistic support to the terrorist organizations, bringing foreign terrorists, facilitating their entry into Syria and setting up training camps for them on Turkish soil under direct Turkish intelligence supervision and providing arms and fire cover to the terrorist groups fighting inside Syria.

The Ministry added that it is no secret that the Turkish regime is building a wall inside the Syrian lands at the expense of the owners of those lands in violation of the principle of good–neighborly relations.

The Ministry concluded by renewing its demand that the Security Council assume its responsibilities in preserving international peace and security and put an end to the violations which the Turkish regime is committing against the Syrian people.
