The National Chairman, Nigerian National Committee on the Study of Juche Idea, Prof. Alhassan Mamman Muhammad, paid a solidarity and courtesy visit to the embassy of Syria, officially known as the Syrian Arab Republic on Monday May 8th 2017.
Syria's population, Sunni Arabs comprise 65 per cent, Kurds and Christians constitute ten per cent each. Alawite sect makes up about ten per cent. Druze, Shia, Ismailis and others make up the remainder.
Foreign backing and open intervention have played a large role in Syria's war. An international coalition led by the United States and her so-called allies comprising Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and several Arab states staunchly support these terrorists in Syria that the West prefer to call Syrian rebels.
Turkey shares about nine hundred kilometres of border with Syria. Through this shared border, terrorist all over the world poured into Syria. These terrorists are trained in Turkey with funding from United States and allied Sunni Arab states, particularly, Saudi Arabia.
As the Syrian conflict enters its seventh year, more than 465,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, more than a million injured and over 12 million Syrians - half the country's pre-war population - have been displaced from their homes.
These terrorists comprise of the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) which seized control of the area surrounding Aleppo and parts of southern Syria. Over time, some factions of the Syrian terrorists split from their original position to pursue an Islamist vision for Syria, joining groups such as al-Nusra Front and ISIL.
ISIL and rebel groups as well as the United States and her so-called allies have been accused of severe human rights violations and of many massacres.
Prof. Alhassan Mamman Muhammad urged the United Nations to lived up to its mandate rained-in United States as a state sponsor of terror, He further urged Turkey to stop its support, provision of training ground, open access to Syria terrorists from its shared border with Syria and its violation of Syrian territorial sovereignty by attacking Kurds in Syria. He also called for United States and Saudi Arabia to be tried for war crimes for their role in fuelling and sustaining the Syrian crises.
