Damascus accuses Washington of violence act in Syria
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 7 / Trend /
Damascus accused Washington of the direct act of violence on Sunday, which occurred in Syria in mid-March. Of course, Syrian activists' external American call to reject the regime's aim to excuse them due to their surrender is an attempt to delay Arabic initiative, for which Damascus made all efforts, Sana reported.
With reference Foreign Minister Valid Al-Muallim, Syria finds the American call to militants to refuse to surrender their weapons as an act of the U.S. to lead to strife and violence in Syria that may cause innocent sacrifices to the Syrian people in the face of army, police and citizens, "Sana" news agency reported.
Syria finds this call of USA to militants as encouragement to continue their criminal operation against the population and the government to refuse peaceful movement in Syria as intention to delay the work of the Arab States League, their initiative to limit the crisis in Syria to assure safety and stability of citizens, Sana reported.
Qatar Foreign Minister Hamad ben Jasem Al Tani reported on Thursday that Syria has agreed with the League's plan that envisions stoppage of violence by all sides of the conflict for the reasons of avoidance of new victims amongst Syrian civilians. Besides, Damascus has been obliged to release all those who were jailed as a result of the latest events.
In addition, the whole military hardware should be removed from Syria's settlements. Under the plan, Damascus will also have to let employees of League's different divisions and Arab and world media enter the country's territory and ensure their free movement there.
If the Government of Syria fulfills the commitments contained in the Arab plan the Arab Commission involved in the issue of settlement in Syria within two weeks will establish contacts with the Syrian opposition to arrange a national dialogue conference.
Syria has been experiencing continuous anti-government protests for almost seven months. According to UN statistics, the number of clash victims exceeded 3,000 people. Syrian authorities say more than 1,500 people died on both sides.
