UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Syria accuses Turkey of knowingly receiving looted items from 1,000 factories plundered in Aleppo by "armed terrorist groups," as Syria calls the armed resistance movement fighting to topple the government.
Syrian Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari made the accusation in a letter to the Security Council released Thursday. He said the transfer of stolen manufactured goods was made "with the full knowledge of the Turkish government."
He called on the Security Council and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to denounce Turkey for receiving the items. The council circulated the letter, dated Jan. 10, with no comment.
