U.S. Embassy in Damascus: No Peace without Accountability

The U.S. Embassy in Syria said there can be no peace without accountability.

In a tweet issued in response to the statement of the UN Commission of Inquiry, the U.S Embassy said the Assad regime carried out a campaign of unjust detention and torture of thousands of Syrians.

“There can be no sustainable peace without accountability”, the statement read.

Last week, the Chair of the UN Syria Commission of Inquiry, Paulo Pinheiro, warned the international community that while some might be thinking the conflict is ending, the facts on the ground paint another picture.

Addressing the Third Committee of the General Assembly on October 25, Pinheiro said: "This is not a time for anyone to be thinking that Syria is safe, for its refugees to return home. Instead, we are seeing an upsurge in fighting and violence," 

"As we speak, millions of civilians continue to be condemned to war, terror, and grief. Many of those displaced have seen their properties destroyed or seized by the Government, armed groups or terrorist groups -- they have little left to return to and little prospects for their livelihoods," Pinheiro elaborated.

Addressing one of the biggest agonies facing Syrians, the Commission reminded the General Assembly about the hundreds of thousands of Syrians wake up each morning, worrying about the fate and whereabouts of missing loved ones.

"We respectfully ask the distinguished representative of the Syrian Arab Republic, how much longer must they wait for your Government to let them know?" asked Pinheiro, stressing that Syrian authorities should allow the detainees to contact their families and to receive visits by independent monitors, and release prisoners who are sick, infirm or elderly.
