Al-Jaafari: Syria Seeks Legislating Arms Trade Due to Risk Posed by Illicit Trade on Security and Peace

NEW YORK, (SANA) – Syria's Permanent Representative at the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said that Syria always has and always will seek the legislation of arms trade due to the risk posed by illicit arms trade on international security and peace.

During the closing session of the UN conference on the arms trade treaty, al-Jaafari said that Syria objects to the current text of the treaty as it doesn't address foreign occupation, the right to self-determination of people under occupation, and the crimes of aggression, in addition to not having a clear article on the absolute ban of providing weapons to terrorist elements and groups.
