Syrian Arab News Agency 29 January 2014

The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry
on Wednesday sent two identical letters to the Head of the UN Security
Council and the UN Secretary-General on the terrorist acts of the armed
terrorist groups and the Saudi involvement in supporting these acts.
The Ministry said that Saudi Arabia
has sponsored an armistice among the armed terrorist groups of the
Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham, al-Mujahiden Army, Jabhet al-Nusra
and others in an attempt to foil the political solution to the crisis in
The Ministry stressed that this act
reveals Saudi Arabia’s insistence on adherence to violence and
terrorism, adding that Saudi Arabia has sought to provide all financial,
military and logistic capabilities as to unify the armed terrorist
groups against the Syrian state.
The statement stipulated that the
Saudi regime has tasked Saudi Sheikh Abdullah Bin Sulieman al-
Mohaisany, who is one of the religious reference which the “jihadist”
groups respond to, with launching an initiative called “nation’s
initiative” on reaching an immediate armistice among all terrorist
groups in all the Syrian areas.
The initiative was based on
consultations with many of so-called “nation’s scholars”, including
Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was called by Sheikh al- Mohaisany’s initiative
as the “wise man of the nation”.
The Ministry said that the “Islamic
State in Iraq and al-Sham” responded to the initiative, which was
planned by the Saudi authorities, along with Abu Mohammad al- Joulani,
leader of “Jabhet al-Nusra” and the terrorist groups of “al-Mujahiden
Army” and the “Islamic Front”.
The Ministry stressed that the
patronage of the Saudi authorities to this initiative and its harmony
with the calls of leader of Al Qaeda for unifying the terrorist groups
which are supported and backed by KSA and the Al Qaeda-linked terrorist
groups in Syria indicates that the role of Saudi Arabia has moved from
the stage of secret support to public support to Al Qaeda and its
affiliated terrorist groups, which constitutes a flagrant and
unprecedented violation of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions,
particularly resolution No 1373 for the year 2001 that prevents any
kind of covert or public support to any entity or persons that are
involved in terrorist acts.
The Ministry said that the Syrian
government calls on the UN Security Council’s sub-committees charged
with combating terrorism to list the “Islamic front” and “al-Mujahiden
Army” as terrorist entities with links to Al Qaeda as with the “Islamic
State in Iraq and al-Sham” and “Jabhet al-Nusra, whihc are listed as
terrorist organizations.
The Ministry highlighted that Syria
also asks for activating the relevant UN Security Council resolution
regarding the importance of international cooperation in combating
terrorism in all means through preventing KSA from providing any kind of
overt or covert support to the groups which are involved in terrorist
acts that endanger the lives of Syrians across the country, adding that
Al Qaeda-linked groups are committing terrorist acts in Syria with overt
or covert support by some countries in the region and abroad, on top of
which is Saudi Arabia.
The Ministry concluded its messages
by saying that Syria highlights that “Not confronting terrorism could
foil the ongoing efforts to achieve a political solution and will cause
terrorism to spread to other countries, particularly the neighboring
countries that are providing training, havens and safe crossing for
terrorists to enter Syria through their lands.”
