IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Damascus, Aug 2, IRNA -- Syrian Foreign Ministry in a statement issued Thursday night expressed regret over the resignation of Kofi Annan as the special envoy of the United Nations and the Arab League in Syrian affairs.

Part of the statement reads that Syria has always proven its commitment to Annan’s six-paragraph plan and it has always cooperated with the international observers in Syria.

“The foreign countries, that targeted the stability in Syria and at the same time voted in favor of Annan’s plan, always insisted on the failure Annan’s plan,” the statement added.

According to the statement, the foreign countries have never been sincere about their claims on trying to help the Syrian government to pass through the crisis and they have even tried to make Annan’s plan to fail by supporting the terrorist groups and giving shelter to them.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry pointed out that the Syrian government will remain committed to its fight against terrorism on the basis of Syria’s governing rules and regulations, as well as resolutions of the United Nations Security Council which pursue returning security and stability to that country by supporting the innocent citizens of Syria and protecting the public and private assets.

It noted that the Syrian government still believes that the only way for coming out of the current deadlock and respecting the demands and ideals of the Syrian people is holding broad-based national dialogue and national reconciliation of the Syrian groups without any foreign intervention.
