UN Panel to Locate Missing Syrians The United Nations has established a panel to determine the fate of missing individuals in Syria, defying objections from the Syrian government, which accuses them of interference.
UN General Assembly Creates Institution to Address Missing Syrians
The United Nations General Assembly has created a new institution to address the whereabouts of thousands of missing individuals in war-torn Syria. The focus is on locating survivors and establishing the fate of victims, in response to demands from families and human rights groups.
Resolution Passed Despite Syrian Government's Opposition
A resolution calling for the establishment of an "Independent Institution for Missing Persons in the Arab Republic of Syria" has been passed by the UN General Assembly. The resolution aims to clarify the fate and whereabouts of all missing persons in the country and provide appropriate support to victims, survivors, and their families.
Syria Denounces Resolution as Interference Syria, along with Russia, China, and Iran, rejected the newly formed panel, stating that it had not been consulted. The Syrian government deemed the draft resolution a "shameless interference in our internal affairs" and accused some Western countries, particularly the United States, of hostile actions against Syria.
