"The Syrian government succeeded in close coordination with friends in Russia and Iran, in cooperation with the Special Envoy," Syria's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar Jaafari, said Monday in his speech during a Security Council session on the political process in Syria. The Secretary-General, Mr. Ged Pederson, has the right to reach the completion of the formation of the Constitutional Committee announced by His Excellency the Secretary-General of the United Nations, and to agree on terms of reference and foundations of its work with the ownership and leadership of Syria away from any external interference.
"This success in forming the Constitutional Committee is a Syrian national success with the privilege of overcoming all the obstacles set by the governments of the anti-Syrian countries to prolong the crisis and hinder the political solution. Syria's determination to form a committee to discuss the constitution, under close follow-up by the President of the Republic, is the matter," Jaafari said. Which contributed to this important national achievement of the Syrian people. "
Al-Jaafari thanked Russia for its role in establishing international peace and security and upholding the principles of international law and the provisions of the Charter, above all the principles of sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of States.
Jaafari pointed to the importance of the political process, saying
“The Government of the Syrian Arab Republic has continued to participate in the Astana meetings as a framework that has achieved tangible results on the ground and has positively addressed the outputs of the Syrian National Dialogue Conference in Sochi that it has agreed to establish a committee to discuss the Constitution. References and rules of procedure related to the Constitutional Committee, where we agreed on the principles governing its work, especially not to violate the principle of full and strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic and the ownership and leadership of the Syrian work. It does not impose any preconditions or conclusions on the work of the Committee or on the recommendations that it may come up with, and this Committee is a judge of its performance and decision, and no State or any other party, in particular the so-called "mini-group", to interfere in We have also agreed not to impose any deadlines or timetables for the work of the Committee, and that every action should be deliberate and clear, considering that the constitution will determine the future of Syria for generations to come. He is aware of these facts. "
"We in the Syrian Arab Republic are keen to achieve progress on the political track based on sound foundations that fulfill the aspirations of the Syrian people. The role of the Special Envoy to Syria will be to facilitate the work of the Committee and to bring the views of the members closer to his good offices when needed," Jaafari said. I reiterate this statement in his opening statement. Based on the above, we reaffirm our readiness to work actively with friendly countries and with the Special Envoy to launch the work of this Committee.
He pointed out that "we are waiting for the visit of the Special Envoy to Damascus after days to jointly prepare with the Syrian state to hold the first meeting of the Constitutional Committee, and to coordinate the steps to get the Commission to produce serious outputs meet the aspirations of the Syrian people."
"While my Government affirms its readiness to engage positively in the work of this Committee, it is based on its approaches to realism and responsibility and recognizes that the course of the political process will not be paved with flowers. The memory of this Council echoes what we and other Member States have been warning of," Jaafari said. It is in this Council, in the hands of some, of tampering with the provisions of the Charter and the principles of international law, as was the case with the invasion of Iraq and the destruction of Libya, the most important thing our countries need is to put out the flames of fireball that some have sought to roll over in our region for decades to destabilize its security. Its stability and predatory looting Despite all this, we remain confident in our national capabilities and support and help friends and allies who want good and stability for Syria, the region and the world, and refuse to interfere in external affairs, and adhere to the political process with the exclusive ownership and leadership of Syria.
Jaafari stressed the need to remove illegal foreign forces from Syria:
"The success of any political track in Syria requires an end to the illegal presence of American, British, French and Turkish foreign forces over Syrian territory. Our belief in the need to move forward in the political process does not in any way renounce our constitutional right to liberate every inch of our territory from Terrorism and illegal military presence. "
"My delegation draws the attention of all those who support the formation of the Constitutional Committee to the fact that the enemies of this settlement process will not abandon the use of any option or fiction unscientific to obstruct its work, which was manifested, and once announced the formation of the Committee, in the promotion of lies and fabrications such as those we have heard We stress that those who seek to obstruct the work of the Constitutional Commission bear the responsibility for its actions, and that to reach serious outcomes of the constitutional debate committee requires the governments of known countries to stop their aggressive practices and fabricate accusations and lies. As well as trying to involve themselves in the internal affairs of Syria. "
