May 1, 2013 (TSR) – President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday sent a message to President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni through his envoy on the latest developments in Syria.
During a meeting between Syria’s Assistant Foreign and Expatriates Minister Hussam al-Din Ala and the Ugandan Minister of Foreign Affairs Henry Oryem Okello in Kampala, the Syrian government briefed the sovereign nation of Uganda the crimes perpetrated by al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups who are supported by some neighboring, regional countries and the West.
Minister Okello reaffirmed his country’s support to Syria in confronting terrorism of the Takfiri organizations affiliated to al-Qaeda who seek to destroy and undermine Syria’s right for self-determination.
Rejecting of any attempt to violate the principles of the international law and the non-intervention in the internal affairs of sovereign countries, Uganda reaffirms their unwaivering support for reaching a peaceful political solution by dialogue to the crisis in a way that guarantees the respect for Syria’s sovereignty.
Syrian Minister Ala further briefed the Ugandan senior official on the details of the conspiracy to which Syria is exposed and the volume of the Zionist controlled mainstream media distortion aiming at deceiving the world public opinion.
He also explained the massive cover up of the crimes perpetrated by the armed terrorist groups, the latest of which, the two explosions which hit Damascus, claiming the lives of scores of innocents, in addition to the assassination attempt on the life of the Syrian Prime Minister.
Ala pointed out the involvement of some countries, namely, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia in supplying the military, logistic and financial support.
He also added the negative impacts of the unilateral economic unfair sanctions on the livelihood of the Syrian civilians by USA and European Union.
Uganda has been vocal in supporting a peaceful resolution in solving the crisis in Syria.
Last year, the country was one of the seven others who rejected a resolution, Resolution No. 12, by the Inter-Parliamentary Union to continue supporting economic and diplomatic sanctions against the Syrian government.
With the First Lady, Janet Museveni, as the key spokesperson for the sovereign nation, joined by Syria, Vietnam, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Chile, Cuba, South Africa and Venezuela, she rejected the resolution and insisted that the IPU should allow the United Nations to complete its fact-finding mission before doing anything premature.
Most of the countries opposed to the resolution argued that the issue of Syria, a country that has seen violent opposition to President Bashar al-Assad’s regime since January 2011, is an internal one, although they all agreed that a diplomatic solution to the problem should be found.
The aforementioned countries still condemns the illegal economic sanctions that has been imposed and see them as political tool. They, together with China and Russia, strongly condemn the violence and that the killing is supposed to be stopped on both sides. Most importantly, that the crisis should be settled by the Syrian people themselves, not from any foreign parties or elements for that matter.
