Syria condemns German government’s decision to ban Syrian citizens from their constitutional right to participate in presidential elections

Damascus, Syria strongly condemned German government’s decision to ban Syrian citizens residing in Germany from their constitutional right to participate in the presidential elections.

An Official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement to SANA on Thursday that the unjust decision of the German government constitutes a blatant violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and a breach of the obligations that this agreement put on the host country.

The source added that the decision forms a flagrant assault on the rights and freedom of Syrians and a desperate attempt to confiscate their decision to participate in that important national entitlement and it uncovers the falsity of democracy of which the German government boasts , and reveals its destructive role in the unjust war on Syria.
