The Norwegian authorities violate international agreements and the sovereignty of Syria with the decision to send a group of military under the pretext of helping in the fight against the terrorist group “Islamic state” (Organization banned in Russia), the Syrian national agency SANA says citing the statement of the Foreign Ministry of Syrian Arab Republic (SAR).
On Monday the Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said that the country would send 60 servicemen, including special forces, for training and operational support of the Syrian soldiers fighting ISIL (Organization banned in Russia).
“Syria condemns such statements (of Norway). Any decision of Norway on this issue violates international law and is contrary to the UN resolutions related to counter-terrorism, and violates the sovereignty of the state,” the Ministry said.
Syria’s Foreign Ministry urged the UN, as well as the Norwegian and international communities to speak out against such statements.
In its statement the Syrian Foreign Ministry notices that those who really want to fight terrorist groups in Syria should coordinate their actions with the country’s leaders and the army commanders.
