NEW YORK, Oct 18 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait renewed late Wednesday calls for a political solution to resolve the crisis in Syria, affirming that a military choice was beyond consideration.
Speaking to a UN session on Syria, Kuwait's Permanent Representative to the UN headquarters in New York Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi said that international community must follow the course clearly laid down by the 2012 Geneva communique and UNSC resolution 2254 to put an end to the misery in the war torn country.
After nine months of Sochi's agreement to form a constitutional committee, the world was hopeful that the crisis in Syria would see some sort of an initial solution, said Al-Otaibi. He hoped that the upcoming visit by United Nations and Arab League Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura to Damascus next week would come out with fruitful results to launch such endeavor.
He indicated that the launching of the reliable and creditable constitutional committee was the very first step towards a political solution for the crisis in Syria.
Not so long, Syria was on the verge of a global humanitarian crisis in Idlib, a city of three million people mostly innocent civilians, said Al-Otaibi who stressed it was important for all involved parties to de-escalate tension in the whole of Syria.
The Kuwaiti diplomat called for the full implementation of February 2018's UNSC resolution 2401 concerning the protection of civilians and making sure that humanitarian aid reached those who are in desperate need.
It was time for the world to put an end to the crisis in Syria, reaching a peaceful epilogue to the sorrow events occurred in the last eight years, affirmed Al-Otaibi. (end)
