The United Arab Emirates’ foreign minister accused the Iranian and Turkish authorities of weakening the sovereignty of Syria.

Iran and Turkey have tried to weaken the sovereignty of Syria and should stop interfering in the conflict, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahyan said Tuesday.

“Along with the domestic political situation, the Syrian problem has arisen as a result of the intervention of external forces, in particular, Iran and Turkey have been acting to weaken the sovereignty of Syria. They must stop interfering in the conflict,” Al-Nahyan said at a press conference.

Iran has been supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad since the beginning of the conflict in 2011. Iranian security and intelligence services have also been advising and supporting the Syrian government forces and Shiite militias, which is often seen as part of larger Sunni-Shiite tensions in the region.

 

Turkey has supported various Syrian opposition groups throughout the conflict in the country.

Wow! The hypocrisy in its maximum manifestation.
How morally a lider of one of a group of countries that has sponsored a horde of cursed terrorists in Syria and Yemen can speak of respect for sovereignty, given the coincidence, just when all terrorists alike are being kicked and ruled by the authority of the regular Syrian government!

The fact that a large part of the dumb Western electorate actually believe the Orwellian Double Speak from these despots is disturbing and I wonder what would actually open the minds of those in the West to the calamitous effects of American inspired wars in the Middle East ?

You hit the nail on the head. The West, Israel and their cronies Turkey, Jordan, Saudis, Gulf States etc caused all this mayhem in the first place. Check out the ‘Yinon Plan’. Assad refused to go along with a proposed pipeline route from Saudi Arabia, so it was decided to overthrow Assad with mercenaries (see ‘Former French Foreign Minister: The War against Syria was Planned Two years before “The Arab Spring” http://www.globalresearch.ca/former-french-foreign-minister-the-war-against-syria-was-planned-two-years-before-the-arab-spring/5339112 But of course the overthrow of Assad was planned earlier than that, not only by Israel but by the US – see ‘Global Warfare: “We’re going to take… Read more »

And what about the US and so called coalition troops and their slave proxies the Kurds with their Rojava aka Greater Israel project for Syria? And what about the Zionist entity and its occupation of the Syrian Golan? Aren’t these who are truly ‘weaking’ or rather trying to destroy altogether, Syria’s sovereignty?
