Damascus blasts Turkey's "destructive" role in Syria unrest

News | 16.02.2013 | 11:59


The Syrian government has sent a letter to the United Nations blasting Turkey's "destructive" role in the conflict that has ravaged the country for the past 23 months.

In the letter, the Syrian Foreign Ministry's has accused Ankara of publicly supporting and financing terrorists fighting against the Syrian government and allowing its soil to be used for training and housing anti-Damascus terrorist groups, AFP quoted state media as saying. 

"Turkey has turned its territory into camps used to house, train, finance and infiltrate armed terrorist groups, among them the al-Qaeda network and the al-Nusra Front," said the letter.

It also accused Turkey of taking "increasingly hostile stances towards Syria, by blocking measures taken by Damascus for a political solution to end the unrest." 

The letter also accused Turkey of "pressuring Syrian opposition members to refuse a recent political plan" proposed by President Bashar al-Assad. 

In December 2012, members of the main Turkish opposition party, the Republican People’s Party, said Libyan and Saudi militants are freely entering Syria via Turkey's border. 

They also said that Turkish military escorts and protects the militants on their way to join terrorist groups in Syria. 

Analysts believe the move is part of an anti-Syria plot hatched by the US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia to fuel the unrest in the country by increasing the number of militants fighting against the government. 

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security personnel, have been killed in the violence. 

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
