At a meeting held at the Foreign Ministry headquarters in this capital, Minister Al-Mekdad praised the existing collaboration with the UNHCR and other UN agencies and offices operating in Syria to help overcome the consequences of the earthquakes that struck the country on February 6.
The head of Syrian diplomacy denounced the negative impact of the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States and its allies in the process of providing humanitarian aid.
The impact of these sanctions mainly falls on ordinary people, he denounced.
Grandi, in turn, thanked the Syrian Government for its cooperation, and stressed the importance of coordinating humanitarian actions between the UNHCR and governmental institutions.
Syria is going through a difficult situation as a result of the earthquakes that shook the country after 12 years of war and a suffocating blockade imposed by the United States and its allies.
