Syria and Turkey's Permanent Envoys to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari and Halit Çevik debated over Turkey's recent cross-border operation in Syria in a meeting in the UN Security Council
The "Maintaining International Peace and Security: Reflections of History" meeting was held under the leadership of China in the UN Security Council.
Bashar al-Jaafari, Syrian Permanent envoy to the UN speaking in the meeting said the following regarding the equip-train protocol signed between Turkey and the US aiming to arm and train terrorist groups in Syria:
"Turkish regime has gathered takfiri mercenaries and criminal terrorists who are thirsty for bloods from many regions in the world to arm, train and finance them to establish their alleged state and make Syria a base for their terrorism from where they set off to the neighboring countries and the whole world," said Bashar al-Jaafari, Syrian Permanent envoy to the UN speaking in the meeting regarding the equip-train protocol between Turkey and the US which aims to arm and train terrorist groups in Syria.
Jaafari also said “Training foreign mercenaries in camps, supervised by the US Pentagon in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and Jordan and sending them through borders to fight the Syrian state is a flagrant violation of the simplest UN principles and an unjustifiable breach by the US to Security Council resolutions No. 2170, 2178 and 2199.”
The Tomb of Suleyman Shah was under the ISIL threat
Turkish envoy Çelik responded to the heavy criticism of the Syrian envoy Jaafari and claimed that the Tomb of Suleyman Shah was under threat.
Turkish envoy Halit Çevik speaking after Jaafari said "The Tomb of Suleyman Shah was under the ISIL threat. Turkey used its rights stemming from the international agreements and the international law. The Chairman of the UN Security Council, the UN Secretary-General and the other officials were informed after the completion of the operation in the same day."
