Syria's Chargé d'Affaires responds to Terence McKenna's documentary

Statement from Bashar Akbik, Syrian Chargé d'Affairs to Canada about a UN report that 5000 Syrians have been killed in his country since March:

"The casualty figures reported have never been corroborated and therefore considered a figment of the imagination of those that churn out such exaggerations. If anything, these exaggerated figures reveal more about the weakness of the Syrian insurgency than the level of instability inside Syria. The Syrian insurgents have every reason to present lies and fabrications that make the case for foreign intervention. The UNHRC report on the number of casualties including those of government troops, was based entirely on dubious sources and is totally uncorroborated. In fact, this report is now subject of scrutiny with regard to the accuracy of its contents, as much of it was found to be fraudulent. We do not wish such embarrassment to any of the UN agencies and encourage the International community to be more skeptical and not parrot unverified, uncorroborated information."
