MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. Syria sees no threat to itself in the Saudi-led coalition battling Houthi rebels in Yemen but thinks that such actions might have an adverse impact on the system of international relations in the Middle East, Bashar al-Jafari, Syria’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations who leads the government delegation to the intra-Syrian consultations in Moscow, said on Friday.
"I would not underestimate the threats facing our country," he said. "But if our enemies who are fighting against the government, against the people, against the army could attack Syria, they would have done it long ago."
The Syrian diplomat said that over the four years of fighting in his country the so-called red lines had already been drawn and the opposition’s foreign sponsors were not ready to trespass them. "I don’t think it might happen now," he said.
However, al-Jafari noted the situation around the military operation in Yemen should be tackled from a wider angle. "There is a plan to knock Arab countries together to have them weaken each other," he noted.
