UN receives political plan on Syria by US-led alliance

(MENAFN) The U.S, Saudi Arabia, France, Jordan and UK have presented a document containing a political plan to the UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura was leaked, according to Reuters and the Lebanese Mayadeen TV.

The plan contained what the five countries called a "practical approach" to a "slow" political process in Syria.

The five countries called for UN-supervised election for the -Syrians inside and outside the country and for radical changes in the Syrian constitution including stripping the Syrian presidency from most, if not all, of its powers.

Bashar Jaafari, the Permanent Representative of Syria to the United Nations, refused the Arab-Western plan and underlined that its content contradicts with the international resolutions, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

"How can a state like this [the US] whose hands are covered in Syrian blood and has directly attacked Syria talk about the political solution and the future in Syria " How can countries such as Britain and France, who follow American policy like the blind leading the blind, envision of any solution or political horizon in Syria? And a state like Jordan, which hosts the secret military operations room and has opened its territory to terrorists " how can it talk about sovereignty, politics, and participation in making a political solution in Syria? "And last but not least, Saudi Arabia, " how can such a medieval country contribute to devising an advanced vision for a Syrian constitution? This rally is a black comedy," Jaafari said according to SANA.
