MOSCOW, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - The U.S. threats to Syria mean threats to the U.N. and international law, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyadh Haddad said on Tuesday.
“The United States arrogantly ignores international laws. The U.N. Security Council is the unique structures, which can take a decision on military intervention,” Haddad said, adding that the United States’ actions held up the work of U.N. chemicals experts for ridicule.
“Washington acts as a prosecutor, a lawyer and a judge. Any interference will violate the U.N. Charter,” the Syrian ambassador said.
“The commission on chemical weapons has not completed its work yet. I believe that the Syrian people must not pay for U.S. President Barack Obama’s hasty position, which is aimed at saving America’s face,” the Syrian ambassador said.
Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyadh Haddad said he is hopeful that the United States and his allies would not use force against the country.
“We hope that this won’t happen. America’s aggression keeps pace with Al Qaeda and Jabhat al Nusra,” the Syrian ambassador said.
“Those who will say the danger proceeds from our country will make a mistake. Many people realise a hidden danger if the radical ideology wins,” Haddad said.
