UN: UNSC resolution on observers in Aleppo part of ‘continued propaganda’ - Syria's Jaafari

United Nations, New York
December 19, 2016 at 16:18 GMT +00:00 · Published

SOT, Journalist: "Are you letting the observers in?"

Jaafari: "Good, excellent. We are talking about observers who are still there on the spot. We are not talking about observers who will come from Mars or from Jupiter. The resolution talks about observers who are there!"

Permanent Representative of the Syrian Arab Republic to the UN Bashar Jaafari held a press conference at the UN headquarters in New York, Monday, following the Security Council’s decision to adopt a resolution for the UN to monitor the withdrawal of militants and civilians from eastern Aleppo.

“France's and Britain's insistence on presenting and adopting such a resolution is just another part of the continued propaganda against Syria and its fight against terrorists,” Jaafari said and added that their real aim is “to protect the terrorists.”

Speaking on the timeframe of the Aleppo evacuations, Jaafari said “the last terrorists in some districts in the eastern parts of Aleppo are evacuating their strongholds. And Aleppo this evening will be clean.”

In a heated exchange with a journalist inquiring if the Syrian government will let UN observers into Aleppo, Jaafari said “we are talking about observers who are still there on the spot. We are not talking about observers who will come from Mars or from Jupiter. The resolution talks about observers who are there!”
