MONTREUX, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The results of the international peace conference Geneva II will be put up for a referendum in Syria, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said, opening the international peace conference in the Swiss city on Wednesday.
“Only Syrian citizens are entitled to determine future of their homeland,” he noted.
“We should give joint rebuff to terrorism and should fight for peaceful future in Syria. The dialogue between the Syrians should take place on Syrian soil,” the foreign minister said.
“Syrian people seek for freedom, democracy, establishment of peace and strong institutions of state power,” Muallem stated. “We seek to have a strong united army. We do not need any mercenaries, we do not want people to be kidnapped and blackmailed,” he added. “Armies of mercenaries are involved in human organ trafficking, rape women and recruit young people. They are hiding behind long, incomprehensible names. They are time-servers and defectors. They stage terrorist acts, though they claim that they are fighting terrorism. They have many names, but we know all of them. This is the truth,” he noted. “The West notes that they are fighting terrorism, but they support terrorists secretly,” Muallem said.
The Syrian foreign minister thanked Russian government on behalf of Syrian people. “Russia showed itself as a true friend and supported the principles of sovereignty laid down in the U.N. Charter,” he said. “China, the BRICS states (the grouping bringing together Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — Itar-Tass), several countries in Africa, Latin America, Iran and Iraq supported us,” he said.
