Nebenzia calls on international community to help Syrian people without politicization


New-York, SANA-Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, called on the international community to help the Syrian people without any discrimination or politicization, stressing that the current humanitarian situation in Syria does not provide an appropriate context for discussions about extending the cross-border aid delivery mechanism.

“it is difficult to get rid of the feeling that the efforts that are being made to justify the lack of an alternative to the mechanism for transporting aid across the borders are more than what is being done to organize supplies across the line of contact”, TASS news agency quoted Nebenzia as saying during a session of the UN Security Council Wednesday .

Nebenzia added that the biased stance of Western states on this issue has notchanged during the last half year.

Nebenzia elaborated that the situation regarding cross-border aid transfer has not become transparent despite 3 rounds of informal consultations, stressing that the arguments in favor of extending the cross-border aid transfer mechanism are not convincing because the lack of an alternative to it is fabricated, pointing out that this situation results from the lack of any Work by Western countries.
