The Syrian government chairs the four months United Nations Disarmament Conference in the Swiss city of Geneva amidst calls to protests and boycott the conference.

Hussam al-Din Ala, the Syrian ambassador to the U.N., will chair the sessions of the second part of the conference, which will start on Monday until June 24; however, Switzerland, Sweden, and Sri Lanka chaired the previous sessions of this year as Tunisia and Turkey are to chair next meetings.   

The state members circulate the Chair of the conference according to the English alphabet. Earlier, the United States and Canada boycotted the conference when Iran chaired in 2013.

Hillel Neuer, the executive manager of the U.N. Watch non-governmental group based in Geneva, reported that the group would protest the conference and feature photos of victims killed in chemical attacks carried by their (Syrian) government.

Neuer added saying,"Having the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad preside over global chemical and nuclear weapons disarmament will be like putting a serial rapist in charge of a women’s shelter."

The use of Assad's government of the chemical weapons s remains the most severe violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) in the 20-year history of the Treaty.

The U.N watch called upon the U.S.A, Britain, France, Germany,  all state members, and other observers not to send ambassadors to attend the conference chaired by the Syrian government.

Earlier, the “Threatened People” German Organization called Germany to boycott the conference to be held in Geneva, saying,” please, do not pay homage to dictator( Bashar al-Assad) and do not allow him to return to the international arena.

The 65 state members of the Disarmament Conference founded in 1979, meet three times a year as the international conference to discuss issues most prominent of which are disarmament of chemical and nuclear weapons.”  

In April, Germany, Britain, France, and U.S.A promised to account the Syrian government for committing a chemical massacre in the city of Khan Sheikhoun in 2017. Humanitarian and human rights organizations confirmed that they have evidence of the government forces’ use of the chemical weapons.

The U.N Security Council failed to vote for a draft resolution that condemns the Syrian government of committing chemical massacres, killing thousands of civilians in recent years, due to Russian Vetoes protecting Assad’s government.
