Zakharova: There is clear politicization by the West in delivering humanitarian aid to Syria

Moscow, SANA- There is a clear politicization by the West in delivering humanitarian aid to Syria, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at press conference on Friday.

 

“There is clear politicization by the West in delivering humanitarian aid to Syria, as Turkey received assistance from 21 countries in the European Union, while only a few provided assistance to Syria, which is unacceptable in the humanitarian field,” Zakharova said.

 

Rendering emergency humanitarian assistance to Syria is a priority, given the destruction caused by the earthquake, the Russian diplomats indicated.

 

“We stress the importance of lifting unilateral restrictions from Syria to simplify relief efforts,” Zakharova added.

 

Russia will continue to provide humanitarian assistance for the quake- affected people in Syria, adding that the Russian rescuers returned from Syria after completing the search-and-rescue operation in the earthquake- affected area, Zakharova said.
