Distinguished Excellencies:

In reference to tomorrow’s briefing of the UNSC in New York City by the Syrian Coalition President Mr. Ahmad Al-Assi Al-Jarba and a senior delegation of Coalition representatives on the ongoing war in Syria, we request your immediate attention and assistance in relation to the next two critical issues:

Letter to the Representatives at the EU Foreign Affairs Council regarding the Arms Embargo to Syria (24 May 2013)

Re: Urgent call by Syrian Christians to uphold the weapons embargo to Syria

Your Excellency,

We refer to the upcoming European Union meeting to be held this Monday 27 May 2013 in Brussels, which will discuss the current EU weapons embargo to Syria. The great majority of Syrian people are vehemently against the Syrian war and plead with international community to put the pressure on relevant parties to solve this war through peaceful means, not through an increase in weapons supplies to any party, including the rebel movement.

THE FORGOTTEN PLIGHT OF THE INDIGENOUS ARAMEANS (SYRIACS) OF SYRIA (16 July 2013)

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

According to international law, the Aramean (Syriac) people and their endangered Aramaic (Syriac) language are indigenous to Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, where they are still struggling hard for survival and for appreciation and official recognition as an ancient Semitic people with their distinct (read: non-Arab, non-Turkish, non-Kurdish, non-Muslim) identity, language, literature and religion.

OPEN BRIEF AAN DE MINISTER VAN BUITENLANDSE ZAKEN: SYRIË SCHREEUWT OM VREDE, NIET OM OORLOG


Hooggeachte Heer Timmermans,

Als voormalig lid van de Raad van Commissarissen van de voetbalclub Roda JC Kerkrade, mijn huidige werkgever, bent u wellicht vertrouwd met mijn achtergrond. Ik ben werkzaam in Nederland als Belgisch staatsburger, maar ik ben geboren en getogen in Syrië als Aramese christen behorend tot de Syrisch-orthodoxe kerk van Antiochië.
