Syrian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday sent two identical letters to the Head of the U.N Security Council and the U.N Secretary-General on the terrorist acts of the militant terrorist groups and the Saudi involvement in supporting these acts.

The Ministry said that Saudi Arabia has sponsored an armistice among the armed terrorist groups of the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham, al-Mujahiden Army, al-Nusra Front and others in an attempt to foil the political solution to the crisis in Syria.

The Ministry stressed that this act reveals Saudi Arabia's insistence on adherence to violence and terrorism, adding that Saudi Arabia has sought to provide all financial, military and logistic capabilities as to unify the armed terrorist groups against the Syrian state.

The statement stipulated that the Saudi regime has tasked Saudi Sheikh Abdullah Bin Sulieman al- Mohaisany, who is one of the religious reference which the "jihadist" groups respond to, with launching an initiative called "nation's initiative" on reaching an immediate armistice among all terrorist groups in all the Syrian areas.

The initiative was based on consultations with many of so-called "nation's scholars", including Ayman al-Zawahiri, who was called by Sheikh al- Mohaisany's initiative as the "wise man of the nation".

The Ministry said that the "Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham" responded to the initiative, which was planned by the Saudi authorities, along with Abu Mohammad al- Joulani, leader of " al-Nusra front" and the terrorist groups of "al-Mujahiden Army" and the "Islamic Front".

The Ministry stressed that the patronage of the Saudi authorities to this initiative and its harmony with the calls of leader of Al Qaeda for unifying the terrorist groups which are supported and backed by KSA and the al Qaeda-linked terrorist groups in Syria indicates that the role of Saudi Arabia has moved from the stage of secret support to public support to al-Qaeda and its affiliated terrorist groups, which constitutes a flagrant and unprecedented violation of the relevant U.N Security Council resolutions, particularly resolution No 1373 for the year 2001 that prevents any kind of covert or public support to any entity or persons that are involved in terrorist acts.

The Ministry said that the Syrian government calls on the UN Security Council's sub-committees charged with combating terrorism to list the "Islamic front" and "al-Mujahiden Army" as terrorist entities with links to Al Qaeda as with the "Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham" and " al-Nusra Front, whihc are listed as terrorist organizations.

The Ministry highlighted that Syria also asks for activating the relevant UN Security Council resolution regarding the importance of international cooperation in combating terrorism in all means through preventing KSA from providing any kind of overt or covert support to the groups which are involved in terrorist acts that endanger the lives of Syrians across the country, adding that Al Qaeda-linked groups are committing terrorist acts in Syria with overt or covert support by some countries in the region and abroad, on top of which is Saudi Arabia.

The Ministry concluded its messages by saying that Syria highlights that "not confronting terrorism could foil the ongoing efforts to achieve a political solution and will cause terrorism to spread to other countries, particularly the neighboring countries that are providing training, havens and safe crossing for terrorists to enter Syria through their lands".
