MOSCOW, August 15 (Itar-Tass) — The fact that Syria will be suspended from the Organisation of the Islamic Conference will run counter the norms of international law, Secretary of the Syrian Parliament Khalid Al Aboud said.
At the same time, Al Aboud said this fact would not have any impact on Damsacus’ economy and policy.
In a Moscow-Damascus video conference on Wednesday, Al Aboud said, “We see a diplomatic attack to be made on us. This runs counter the norms of international law.”
“What consequences are for us?” the Syrian official asked. “No consequences will be. No impact will be on the economy, policy and the military component.”
Al Aboud also noted that the OIC faced specific purposes. “Here we see nothing else but the Saudi-Iranian scenario,” the Secretary of the Syrian Parliament said.
He explained that on one hand, Iran played the role of defender of Syria. But on the other hand, “it can be involved in other processes”, Al Aboud said.
