Syria – Statement by the Syrian National Coalition’s interim government on human rights (November 20, 2013)
France welcomes the statement adopted on November 19 by the Syrian National Coalition’s interim government in which it reaffirms its attachment to human rights and its commitment to upholding the international agreements and pacts in this area.
This commitment is essential to building the Syria of tomorrow that will respect the rule of law. France reaffirms its full support for the coalition, the only legitimate representative of the Syrian people as well as for its interim government.
This statement comes at a time when the UN General Assembly has just, once again, – through a resolution adopted yesterday by a large majority – condemned the violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in Syria, for which Bashar al-Assad’s regime is primarily responsible.
