Former Iranian Envoy Warns of US, Israel, Arab States' Plot to Disintegrate Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- A former Iranian envoy to Latin America rapped Israel, the US and its regional Arab allies for supporting terrorist groups and unrests in Syria, warning that they have hatched plots to disintegrate the Muslim country.

"Today, the Syrian government has come to know its regional friends and foes and is now aware that Arab rulers, Israel and the US have stood to stage a full disintegration of Syria," Former Iranian Accredited Ambassador to Guatemala Mohammad Hassan Qadiri Abianeh told FNA on Saturday.

Yet, he dismissed as unlikely the US's direct military intervention in Syria, considering that Washington is grappling with numerous problems at present, specially its aggravating economy.

He reminded that the US policies have failed in Iraq and Afghanistan and the country's fighting in a third front will further undermine its reputation.

Also the US is facing a bad economic condition, Qadiri Abianeh underlined, and described the Afghan, Iraqi and Syrian people's hatred for Washington as another obstacle to the White House's direct military attack on Syria.

In relevant remarks in October, Secretary-General of Syria's ruling Baath party Fayez Ezzeddin blasted Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani for implementing US plots in the region, and disclosed that certain Arab regimes plot to disintegrate Syria into 6 tiny emirates.

Addressing the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, the Qatari Emir called on Arab nations to form a political and military coalition to intervene in Syria, posing a direct challenge to UN efforts to resolve the conflict through negotiations.

"Such proposals and plots cannot be assumed as insistence but they should be seen as orders given by the US to Qatar," Ezzeddin told FNA at the time.

Noting that the US and other enemies of Syria have told the Arab regimes to do whatever they can to prevent Damascus victory against foreign intervention and unrests in the country, he said, "They are making every effort to annihilate Syria to disintegrate it into 6 tiny countries or emirates."

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May 2012, that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling the President Bashar al-Assad's government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.

Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said in May that the flow of weapons - most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past - has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
