Syria Accuses UN Human Rights Council Commission of Being a ‘Cheap Propaganda Machine’

Syria’s government has rejected recent renewed allegations by a committee affiliated to the United Nations Human Rights Council that the government of Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against its own people.

A top Syrian diplomat slammed the commission for being “politicized” and acting as a “cheap propaganda machine”.

The Syrian government “never used and will never use toxic gases against its people because it does not possess them in the first place and it considers the use of such gases a moral crime that must be condemned,” Syrian Foreign Ministry said.

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Hussam Ala, sent a letter to the President of the Human Rights Council saying that Syria never used such weapons, and saying that the international organization had deviated from its mandate by serving “impartial sides,” and making accusations with “no tangible basis whatsoever.”
