Geneva 2 Syria: Syrians' right to self-determination

Nov 4, 2013
Damascus, (SANA) - A Foreign and Expatriates Ministry source on Sunday dismissed US Secretary of State John Kerry's continued statements as aimed to abort Geneva conference and constituting a blatant interference in the Syrian Affairs.
The source stressed that Kerry's statements constitute violation of the Syrian people's right to self-determination.
"If the US was sincere about cooperating with the Russian Federation in sponsoring Geneva conference, then Kerry must grasp that the Syrian people alone have the right to choose their leadership and political future without any foreign interference," said the source.
It went on saying that "Kerry must realize that the success of Geneva conference depends on the will of the Syrian people themselves through agreement to work to halt violence and terrorism and achieve the political settlement that would lead to the broadest participation in drawing Syria's future."
