|Ambassador Zhang Jun Urged the US to Lift Unilateral Sanctions against Syria Immediately|
On 29 July, the Security Council held an open VTC on Syrian humanitarian issue. Ambassador Zhang Jun firmly refuted the irresponsible comments from the United States, and urged the US to stop politicizing the humanitarian issue and lift unilateral sanctions against Syria immediately.
Zhang Jun pointed out, China has always adopted a constructive and responsible approach in dealing with the cross-border issue. In fact, it is the United States that should reflect over itself. In addressing the cross-border issue, the United States voted 6 times against reasonable draft resolutions and amendments aimed at narrowing differences and finding solutions.
Zhang Jun emphasized, if the US truly cares about the humanitarian situation in Syria, it should stop politicizing the humanitarian issue, stop putting up hypocritical political show. If the US truly cares about the humanitarian situation in Syria, it should immediately lift unilateral sanctions against the Syrian people, instead of creating groundless excuses. If the US truly cares about the humanitarian situation in Syria, it should stop hegemony policy, regime change and bullying practices in the Middle East and other parts of the world, which had led to endless chaos and instability.
