HUMANITARIAN FALLOUT IN SYRIA THREATENS INT’L POLITICAL SITUATION – DIPLOMAT
Kuwait warned Friday that the ongoing humanitarian fallouts in Syria are threatening the overall international political situation.
The international community must stop the bloodshed in Syria and find comprehensive and permanent solution for the crisis, Kuwait’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Jamal Al-Ghunaim urged in his speech at the 37th Session of the interactive dialogue with Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism.
Al-Ghunaim stressed the importance of activating action within the human rights council’s measures, and separating human rights issues from political controversies, regional and international bargains, and international bureaucracy.
Kuwait reiterates its firm commitment to Syria’s sovereignty, independence, and safety of its territories, he affirmed, expressing his country’s aspiration for a close cooperation with UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura in efforts aimed at achieving peace in the region.
Kuwait is willing to back De Mistura’s efforts toward reaching an agreement based on the Geneva communiques and UNSC resolution 2254, Al-Ghunaim added, pointing out the humanitarian situation in Syria is a top priority to the Kuwaiti diplomacy.
Furthermore, Kuwait reiterates its willingness to exert all efforts toward improving the humanitarian conditions in Syria, and hopes that all humanitarian demands by the UN and its relief agencies to enhance the humanitarian situation in Syria, particularly in besieged areas, are met, said Al-Ghunaim.
Kuwait strongly condemns all human right violations in Syria, and voices deep concern over the current military siege imposed on eastern Ghouta, which is depriving innocent civilians of receiving necessary humanitarian aid, said the Kuwaiti diplomat.
Kuwait also condemns the repeated assaults on medical facilities and infrastructures, and the random use of heavy artilleries and air strikes against eastern Ghouta’s residents, he affirmed.
Al-Ghunaim also reiterated his country’s demand for allowing UN and humanitarian bodies to enter conflict-stricken areas in Syria to deliver aid and relief to civilians stranded in those areas.
