In his opening address to the Geneva 2 Peace conference on 22 January 2014, published
by SANA, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Moallem gave a comprehensive account of the terrorist war of aggression that has, according to some estimates, cost Syria 100,000 lives in almost three years since March 2011. His speech named other conference attendees, including the United States, Israel and the Arab dictatorships of Qatar and Saudi Arabia as the principle perpetrators of these crimes. This speech was also published on Global Research on 22 Jan 2013.
The address by Secretary of State, John Kerry, which contains a number of known falsehoods, is also included as an Appendix
for comparison with Walid Moallem's speech. The original
can be found on the U.S. Secretary of State's web-site.
