UN General Assembly to Debate Human Rights in Syria

United Nations, Feb 11. – The UN General Assembly is scheduled to hold a debate on Monday on the situation in Syria, after the Western powers failed in a resolution of condemn of the Security Council against the government of that country.

The summoning to the meeting of the UN General Assembly was confirmed by Nidal Saad, official spokeswoman of the president of that body, which is formed by 193 UN member states.

The formal meeting is scheduled as part of the point 64 of the agenda entitled Report of the Human Rights Council.

In this case, it is a report of that agency on the 18th special session held on December 2, 2011, said the spokeswoman.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay is expected to address Monday debate, after she strongly attacked Syrian authorities three days ago and urged nations to break their political ties with Damascus.

That action line was started by the United States last week when it decided to withdraw its ambassador in Damascus, which was immediately followed by Spain, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Tunisia, and other Persian Gulf nations.(Prensa Latina)
