“An attack against Syria would have extremely serious consequences for the Middle East, a region that is already troubled,” said a statement by the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “It would be a flagrant violation of the principles of the UN Charter and international law. It would also increase the dangers to international peace and security,” stated the Cuban Ministry.
Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa also rejected any aggressive unilateral actions which would violate Syria’s sovereignty. According to Correa, “No country has the moral right to take upon itself the function of a judge who determines what is right or wrong.”
