Bulgaria is appalled by the continuing violence in Syria. We support the draft Security Council Resolution, presented by Morocco because it outlines a peaceful transition process that is the only way to stop the killings of civilians in Syria. Therefore, we call on all UNSC members to support the Resolution.

The humanitarian situation in Syria continues to deteriorate and urgent action is needed to alleviate the crisis and suffering.

I want to particularly recognize the active role of the Arab League and express our strong support for its plan. Their work is a key element of the international efforts to stop the violence and ensure a peaceful future for the Syrian people.

We confirm our continuous support for the efforts of the Syrian National Council and the whole Syrian opposition towards dialogue and unification. We encourage them to set a comprehensive programme for a swift and peaceful transition to a democracy, providing equal rights and protection to all Syrian citizens.
