MOSCOW, December 1. /ITAR-TASS/. New facts of blatant aggression of the terrorists against the civilians in Syria should prompt the participants of the forthcoming international conference Geneva-2 to initiate tough sanctions against radical elements, Syrian Ambassador in Moscow Riyad Haddad said at the round-table meeting devoted to radical Islam as a factor of globalisation at the Russian Institute of Strategic Studies in the Russian capital on Tuesday.
“The radicalism cannot be included in some concrete religion, confession or an ethnos, because it is an abnormal phenomenon, which contradicts religious principles,” the diplomat noted.
On December 11, extremists from the Jebhat an-Nusra grouping attacked the settlement Adra outside Damascus. “The casualties number hundreds of people there, including children and elderly people,” the ambassador noted. “The criminals have seized a police station and killed all policemen there, then they have captured a city outpatient clinic and also killed all people there and hanged the dead bodies on the trees,” the ambassador said. “What is happening there cannot be called either the Islam or a religion,” he noted.
The ambassador urged “to hold the conference Geneva-2 under the motto of the struggle against the radicalism” and said with hope that “it will turn in a venue for taking resolutions and decisions, including tough sanctions against those who support the murders, give aid to the killers, no matter they are some people, organisations or states.
