NEW YORK, (SANA) – Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem resumed official meetings at the UN headquarter in New York on Saturday.

The meetings took place on the sidelines of the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Minister al-Moallem met with Togo Minister of Foreign Affairs Elliot Ohin, as Togo is currently a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.

Al-Moallem gave a review of the latest developments in Syria and the aggressive acts supported by some countries which are conspiring on the Syrian people.

Togo Minister of Foreign Affairs promised Minister al-Moallem to convey the reality of the events to the leadership of his country, stressing the need to continue the bilateral consultations.

Minister al-Moallem also met with Lebanon's Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour and discussed the brotherly relations and the latest developments.


Al-Moallem briefed his Lebanese counterpart on the latest developments pertaining to the mission of the UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi and Syria's efforts to make his mission a success in a way that serves Syria's sovereignty and stability.

Al-Moallem met with Brahimi and discussed his mission in Syria, with al-Moallem stressing that the success of Brahimi's mission depends basically on stopping supporting, funding and arming the armed terrorist groups as a way to start the dialogue, which the government adopts and the opposition rejects.

Al-Moallem reiterated Syria's welcome of any constructive efforts exerted by Brahimi and readiness to provide all facilitations to make his mission a success.

Al-Moallem met UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman, and briefed him on the deliberate attacks of the armed terrorist groups against the Syrian public and private properties in addition to the infrastructure institutions.


Al-Moallem stressed that the economic sanctions imposed by the USA and European countries are the basic problem to the Syrian people's livelihood.

The meetings were attended by Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Dr. Fayssal Mikdad, Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari and Speaker of the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry Dr. Jihad Makdissi.
