Syria Accuses Europeans of Diplomatic War
Syria’s U.N. ambassador is accusing Britain, France and Germany of declaring political and diplomatic war against his country by sponsoring a U.N. resolution that would condemn Syria’s human rights violations.
Ambassador Bashar Ja’afari said the three European nations are “suffering from Syria-phobia.”
He spoke at a meeting of the General Assembly’s human rights committee Monday afternoon after Germany’s U.N. Ambassador Peter Wittig introduced the resolution. The committee is scheduled to vote on it Tuesday.
