UNITED NATIONS, September 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin in his speech at the UN General Assembly on Monday exposed very clearly and in a very accurate manner the hypocrisy of the Western policy towards Syria, Bashar al-Jaafari, Syria’s envoy to the UN has said.
"Putin is reading the map of the Middle East correctly and he has the right analysis ant categorization of what’s happening. And he knows the root causes of what’s going on," the diplomat told a TASS correspondent.
Putin’s statement is an important juncture in the scene of the Syrian crisis and in the international relations, he said, adding that this is the first time Putin "points his finger on the main issues."
The diplomat noted the Russian leader for the first time said that the Islamic State terrorist group "is the making of the West designed in the laboratories of the Western intelligence."
Putin said at the session of the UN General Assembly on Monday that the activity of any state in bypassing the UN Charter is illegitimate and called to establish an international anti-terrorist coalition. The Russian leader also said the UN Security Council should consider a possibility of adopting a resolution on coordinating all the forces fighting against the IS.
