Syrian view on hostile regional policies it is facing
Syria-Regional-USA, Politics, 12/22/2005
Member of the Regional Leadership of al-Baath Arab Socialist Party and Head of the Culture, Media and Preparation Bureau, Haitham Satayhi, said "Syria is currently under pressure because of its commitment to its legitimate rights and principled stances."
Satayhi said in a political analysis before Damascus Party Branch on the current regional and international situations that "pressure put on Syria is the fiercest ever in terms of the agenda outlined by some great powers which seek to sketch a certain role for each Arab state in a way that matches up to that hostile agenda."
He added that Syria cannot accept any diktats or demands that contradict its own interest and pan-Arab role and principles.
He said Syria is an important country in the region and has a lot of friends across the world who are ready to stand by it as they did in several cases.
Satayhi pointed out that the absence of Arab solidarity has caused a great gap that affects all Arab issues strongly incorporated in the great powers agenda.
He added that the latest UN Security Council resolutions on the Lebanese situation aims at harming Syria and force it to involve itself in projects against Syrian and Arab interests in the region.
He said Syria, with the help of its friends, has exerted great efforts to minimize as much as possible the effects of pressures and unilateral actions, adding that this was reflected in the latest UN Security Council resolution. Syria's friends at the Security Council helped amend its severe form which aimed at cornering Syria and limiting its political options.
He reiterated Syria's commitment to the international resolutions and openness to the international investigation into the assassination of former Lebanese Premier Rafiq al-Hariri in a way that does'nt contradict with international laws and national sovereignty and out of its full confidence of its innocence.
Satayhi renewed Syrias willingness to establish fraternal relations with Lebanon "away from accusations and nervousness which only hurt joint history of public relations between both of them."
He expressed Syria's willingness to "open up to all Lebanese forces willing to establish friendship relations with it along with enhancing existing relations with the Lebanese national forces which had been able through long resistance to evict Israeli occupation from most of the Lebanese territories."
