India revises schedule for australia visit: ‘We have not changed our course’

Posted

An official from Australia’s foreign affairs department has said the country will make a new schedule for its visit to Australia due to the recent events in Syria.

The country’s foreign affairs minister Julie Bishop announced on Thursday that Australia would stop flying to Syria this week due to the ongoing conflict 온라인 카지노between Assad’s government and opposition forces.

“We have not changed our course; we will not be resuming our travel or doing anything at this time,” she said at a joint press conference.

“I’ve said in the past that if you continue to send weapons to the opposition you can expect us to respond,” said Mr Abbott.

W출장hile Mr Abbott has repeatedly said he does not support arming the Syrian rebels, his government has previously pledged to stop all weapons entering the country.

The president of the United States has also publicly criticised Mr Assad’s r용인안마egime for alleged war crimes and vowed to take action to punish the war-time leader.

Last Friday, Mr Obama criticised the Assad regime for targeting civilians, a condition the US and its allies in the region have also set for stopping any further arms being delivered to the Syria conflict.

Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop will join the White House on Wednesday to discuss the deteriorating situation in Syria.

Mr Abbott described the White House meeting as a “positive opportunity” to reaffirm Australia’s stance that Syria is not a candidate for a UN Security Council resolution to refer its conflict there to the international criminal court.

“I’m hopeful that the President can reaffirm Australia’s resolve that Australia’s position – and the position of the United States and others – is we can’t be a party to an international court judgment to hold anyone accountable for killing, maiming, torturing people and torturing women and children in Syria,” he said.
