Middle East Commissioner for UN human rights commission Dr. Haissam Bu Said received confirmation that his report to UN Secretary General on Syria, Gordon and Egypt on human rights issues was favorable and dealt with properly.
Dr Haissam told VT that UN human rights commission will open a headquarters soon in Syria, in Sweda province, after obtaining an official approval from the Syrian Government.
He also said that the main aim is to provide humanitarian support for the Syrian Government and people, and help stabilize the regime and ensure peaceful coexistence.
The UN Middle East Commissioner had previously met with Dr. Najm Al Ahmed, Ex Justice minister, to coordinate efforts on Syrian deportees and refugees and their safe return to Syria.
The Russians are currently pressing hard for their return, as well to ensure that Assad will win the elections and stay in power for a longer term.
It is expected that 3 millions out of 5 will return to Syria, according to Ambassador Haissam Bu Said.
Ambassador Haissam personally thanked the Vt team, in particular senior editor and board chairman Gordon Duff, for the important part he plays in revealing the truth in the US media despite all the pressures he is enduring from different circles there.
The Ambassador also said our relation with VT is strategic, and we will cooperate with VT on Intel and human rights issues together.
And our cooperation will yield fruits in the near future.
