Geheime UN-Akten über Holocaust schreiben „Geschichte neu“ (sputniknews)

Erstmals soll die 1943 in London geschaffene UN-Kommission für Kriegsverbrechen (UN War Crimes Commission, UNWCC) noch diese Woche Zehntausende Unterlagen über NS-Massenvernichtungen veröffentlichen. Die britische Zeitung „The Guardian“ liefert schon vorab einen kleinen Einblick.

Auszug:

(…) Das Archiv selbst wurde gemeinsam mit der UNWCC in den späten 1940er Jahren geschlossen, als Westdeutschland zu einem zentralen Verbündeten zu Beginn des Kalten Krieges und die Nutzung der Unterlagen effektiv unterbunden wurde. Etwa zur gleichen Zeit wurde vielen verurteilten Nazis eine vorzeitige Entlassung gewährt, nachdem sich der antikommunistische US-Senator Joseph McCarthy aktiv dafür eingesetzt hatte, die Kriegsverbrecherprozesse einzustellen.

BRICS Issues Joint Statement: Illegal Military Intervention in Syria Is Unacceptable

The joint BRICS statement says military action in Syria without authorization from the UN Security Council is dangerous and unacceptable

Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa have issued a joint BRICS statement condemning military action in Syria that has not been authorized by the United Nations. The statement also calls for respect of international law, territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Some highlights from the statement:

BRICS Special Envoys on Middle East expressed their concern about internal crises that have emerged in a number of states in the region in recent years. They firmly advocated that these crises should be resolved in accordance with the international law and UN Charter, without resorting to force or external interference and through establishing broad national dialogue with due respect for independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the countries of the region. The participants emphasized the legitimacy of the aspirations of the peoples of the region to enjoy full political and social freedoms and for respect to human rights.

They strongly condemned recent several attacks, against some BRICS countries, including that in the Russian Federation. BRICS members stand for consolidating international efforts to combat the global threat of terrorism. They stressed that counter-terrorism measures should be undertaken on the firm basis of international law under the aegis of the UN and its Security Council.

In the course of the meeting, the role of the UN Security Council as the international body bearing the primary responsibility for maintaining international peace and security was underlined. It was also stressed that military interventions that have not been authorized by the Security Council are incompatible with the UN Charter and unacceptable.

BRICS Special Envoys expressed their deep concern with regard to the continuing violence in Syria, deterioration of humanitarian situation and growing threat of international terrorism and extremism in that country.

The participants confirmed their strong support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and the need for a peaceful solution, led by the Syrians, to the conflict. They supported all efforts towards a political and diplomatic solution in Syria through talks based on Resolution 2254 of the United Nations Security Council. They welcomed the three rounds of talks held in Astana and the outcome of fifth round of talks in Geneva. They acknowledged that Astana talks paved the way for resumption of Geneva talks. They expressed resolve for renewed and committed efforts to find a political and diplomatic solution in Syria. In this regard, the efforts of the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary General Staffan de Mistura aimed at resumption of Geneva process were welcomed. The efforts of BRICS countries in providing humanitarian aid to Syria were welcomed. They called for continuing humanitarian assistance to Syria by BRICS countries and collaborating in the reconstruction of Syria.

While strongly condemning terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, they called upon all Syrians to join hands in the face of this dangerous threat and urged the international community to strictly abide by all the obligations pursuant to various relevant UNSC resolutions.
