MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. European governments contribute to the passage of terrorists to Syria and Iraq, Syria's UN ambassador Bashar Jaafari has said in an interview with Euronews TV channel.
"If these [European] states really wanted to stop the terrorists striking Syria and Iraq, they would have forbidden the flow of these terrorists from their countries," Jaafari said. "For every terrorist who has come to us, his government is responsible."
"Today we have a new phenomenon called European terrorism. They claimed before that there was Arab and Islamic terrorism. Today we are victims of European terrorism, emanating from Brussels, Paris, London, Spain, Germany, Italy," he said.
"It’s hard to believe that a terrorist who leaves Paris, London, Brussels, or Boston, or Australia and arrives in Syria without a visa, without a passport, through dozens of states and the Turkish-Syrian or Jordanian-Syrian border, has done so without intelligence services overseeing these operations," he added.
The diplomat said the threats of the British, French and Australian prime ministers to withdraw the nationality of terrorists returning to Europe mean that "these governments encourage the terrorists to stay in Syria and not to return to Europe."
After the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris in November French President Francois Hollande announced an initiative to amend the country’s constitution to strip French citizenship from the nationals convicted of terrorism. However, on March 30 the French president retreated from the plan to change the constitution.
