Mikdad: US, Turkish agreement to arm and train terrorists means failure of de Mistura initiative

Damascus, SANA-Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad  said the agreement between the US and Turkey to train and arm terrorists of the so-called “moderate opposition” means the failure of a plan set by the UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura before it begins and reflects Erdoagan’s unsuccessful endeavors and his cooperation with terrorists.

“This agreement is a premature judgment by those countries on the failure of de Mistura’s mission which was supported by Syria that will exert every effort to make it a success,” Mikdad said in an article published by Lebanese al-Binaa newspaper on Saturday.

“The reality which became crystal clear is that the US politicians are the ones who protect the terrorist criminal organizations, and the most important evidence on this fact is the cosmetic war of the US coalition on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization which is carried on beyond the international legitimacy and the UN Security Council’s relevant resolutions,” Mikdad added.

He affirmed that the US talking about terrorist “moderate” armed groups in Syria and in other regions, including their relations with gangs of Muslim brotherhood which perpetrated crimes in Syria and Egypt, is an indication to the failure of the US administration in outlining its strategy and targets.

Mikdad said Syria won’t see anything new in the hostile policy of the US and Turkey as this agreement is an extension to the US-Turkish polices since 4 years.

He added that announcing the training of thousands of terrorists will be an announcement to kill the international law and all regulations set by those who believe in the achievement of international peace and security.
