The Syrian envoy to the UN has criticized the world body’s double standards on the fight against terrorism, stressing that terror threats cannot be dealt with through a selective approach.

In a statement issued on Thursday, Bashar al-Ja’afari slammed Turkey’s approach to the Syria crisis, adding that the UN would not be able to counter terrorism while turning a blind eye to the “wrong policies” adopted by Ankara on the situation in the violence-torn Arab country.

There should be “no selectivity” in combating terrorism, said the senior Syrian diplomat after a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the deadly turmoil in his country.

Ja’afari added that Turkey is violating the UN Charter and the principles of international law by meddling in Syria’s internal affairs and allowing Takfiri terrorists to cross the border in the neighboring Arab state.

“It can’t be denied that the Turkish policy is one of the causes of increasing the violence in Syria through facilitating the flow of the ISIS (ISIL) and al-Nusra Front terrorists into the Syrian territories,” he added.

Syria has been grappling with a foreign-backed deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of nearly 200,000 people, according to reports.

Since late September, the US and its allies have been conducting airstrikes against the ISIL inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

This is while many of the parties to the so-called anti-ISIL alliance have been among the major supporters of the Takfiri terrorists working to topple the Syrian government since March 2011.
