Member of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee Hadi al-Bahra stressed the need for the UN Security Council’s member states to take measures to ensure the implementation of Resolution 2401. The Council is set to convene later on Monday to assess the ceasefire and the delivery of humanitarian aid to those in need.
“Allowing the Assad regime to continue to commit crimes against the Syrian people without any consequences will not restore stability in the region or put an end to the terrible cycle of terrorism,” Bahra said. He stressed that the actions of the Assad regime are “the root cause of extremism and the trigger for the endless cycle of terrorism.”
Bahra underscored that the international community is to blame for the current situation in Syria “as it has left the Syrian people alone for seven consecutive years in its struggle against the crimes of the tyrannical regime.”
Bahra pointed out that Iran’s continued pursuit of destructive policies in Syria and the region leading to further spread of terrorism as well as the fueling of sectarian strife and conflicts throughout the region will make it impossible to achieve peace or restore security and stability to the region.
The Iranian regime is the main supporter and partner with the Assad regime, Bahra said, stressing the need to hold it accountable for the crimes the Iranian militias and forces are committing in Syria.
