Syria regards Arab summit decisions as "biased"


09:31, March 30, 2012

DAMASCUS, March 29 (Xinhua) -- Syria's official SANA news agency launched criticism over the statement issued Thursday at the end of Arab League (AL) summit in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, saying the summit has issued "biased decisions inspired by agendas of the Gulf sheikhdoms."

In a commentary issued late Thursday, SANA said the statement ignored the terrorism practiced against the Syrian citizens by armed groups that are being supported financially and medialy by Qatar and Saudi.

"The summit has ignored the terrorist attacks, the assassinations and sabotaging acts committed by armed groups against civilians, private and public properties," SANA said.

"In its statement, the summit stressed concern and keenness on Syria's stability and unity and to avoid foreign military intervention, however it stressed and called on the UN Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities toward Syria and that means an overt invitation for foreign intervention in Syria's affairs," said SANA.

Earlier in the day, the Arab leaders wrapped up the AL summit in Baghdad after approving the final statement and a document named Baghdad declaration.

The final statement of the summit included the call from Arab leaders on "the Syrian government to immediately stop violence, murder, and to protect civilians and to ensure the freedom of peaceful protests."

They also called on the "Syrian forces to withdraw from the cities and villages, and to safeguard Syria's stability, and reject any military intervention.

The leaders called for providing full support to the mission of the UN envoy Kofi Annan.

"The Arab leaders condemned violations of human rights and considered the massacre of Baba Amr (in Homs in central Syria) by the Syrian security and army forces a crime against humanity that entails bringing the Syrian officials to justice."

A similar call to Syrian opposition forces to stop fighting would be appropriate. Right now, all blames are heaped on the Syrian government and asked it to stop violence. Both sides should be called to stop the violence in Syria.
