The Syrian Foreign Ministry responded to the statement issued by the US-led coalition partners that refused to take part in the reconstruction of Syria noting that these states are not invited to contribute to the reconstruction after those war crimes committed against the Syrian people.
“These countries that killed and destroyed have never been interested in the reconstruction of Syria and they are not invited to contribute to the reconstruction. These states should only pay compensations for the killing and destruction committed as a result of their heinous crimes and stop their blatant interference in internal affairs”, the statement obtained.
The ministry noted that counterterrorism methods of the US-led coalition constitute war crimes and violations of the international law.
The United States, France, Germany and the United Kingdom said in a joint statement on Friday that they will not consider providing reconstruction assistance to Syria until a credible political process is underway in the country.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry called this statement a historic evidence of “lie, hypocrisy, deception and falsification”.
