The imposition of sanctions and their renewal despite the Covid-19 pandemic and its negative impact on the population show real hypocrisy in dealing with the humanitarian situation in Syria, the Foreign Ministry announced in a letter to the UN Secretary General and the President of the Security Council.

The text explains this blockade’s catastrophic effects on Syrians’ lives and their daily needs for food, medicine, electricity, heating fuel, healthcare and even infant formula.

It also criticizes the holding of the 5th Brussels Donors’ Conference without the presence of the Syrian Government which is, according to the document, the party dealing with the people’s issues and needs and is the main partner of the United Nations and the international community in the humanitarian work in Syria.

It warns that the Brussels conference became a donors’ pressure and blackmail tool in order to impose their dictates on humanitarian aid delivery mechanisms.

The focus of humanitarian action in Syria should be Damascus and not other cities in other neighboring countries, it concludes.
