Syrian Expatriates Organization (SEO) is deeply concerned by the reports that, Iran is actively assisting the Assad regime in the ongoing atrocities against Syrian people, which was inferred from report by Reuters, "Two Iranian warships docked at the Syrian port of Tartous on Saturday, Iranian state TV reported. The ships were said to be providing training for Syrian Naval Forces."
SEO is extremely disturbed by Iran's involvement in helping the Syrian regime, which was pointed out in a report by, Fox news, stated that, Iran gave Syria $ 1 Billion,"The Iranian regime has been helping Syria circumvent international sanctions imposed for the brutal slaughter of its civilians, according to documents from the Syrian president's office."
Despite the United Nations agreement on condemnation of Assad regime bloody crackdown, and the demand for Bashar Assad to step down, as issued in the United Nation General assembly resolution; Iran insisted on escalating the confrontation with Syrian people in particular, and the whole region in general, As reported by, The New York Times, "The presence of Iran and Russia’s flotillas along the Syrian coast has a clear message against the United States’ possible adventurism,” said Hossein Ebrahimi. a vice chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission, Fars reported."
SEO holds Iran, direct culpability in Syrian regime crimes against Syrian people. Mr Louay Sakka, SEO board member, said" Iran's supporting the Syrian regime, is violation of the international law, and should be terminated immediately. Iran's hostile action considered as confrontation with Syrian people and their rights in building their own democratic independent country. Iran's interference with Syrian Cause would have the consequence of escalating the crisis, and bring more tension to the region."
SEO urges the International community to take the necessary actions, to secure the immediate cessation of Iran's interference in Syria, and to insure the discontinuation of Iran's support to Assad regime in his bloody atrocities.
