On Syria, Draft GA Resolution Nods to Opposition, Chemical Weapons Probe

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, April 9 -- Yesterday Inner City Press first reported on the draft UN General Assembly resolution on Syria being prepared by Qatar, Saudi Arabia and others. Click here for that.

Now that others are re-reporting that, Inner City Press is publishing the draft, here.

For six pages -- 21 perambulatory paragraphs, followed by 29 more -- the draft resolution is nearly entirely directed at the government of Bashar al Assad.

  It recalls “all meetings of the group of friends of the Syrian people, in particular the fourth Ministerial Meeting held in Marrakech on 12 December 2012, where the participants acknowledged the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and opposition Forces as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.”

  The draft goes on to welcome “the establishment of the National Coalition of the Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces on 11 November 2012 in Doha, State of Qatar, notes the wide international acknowledgment of the Coalition as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.”

The draft “demands that the Syrian authorities provide full and unfettered access to the Secretary-General’s investigation into all alleged use of chemical weapons and calls on all parties to cooperate with the investigation.”

Ban Ki-moon's negotiator Angela Kane, as Inner City Press first reported, has herself been under investigation, for irregularities in the UN's UMOJA program. We'll have more on this. Watch this site.
