Security Council extends “cross-border aid operation” in Syria …. Sabbagh: a politicized step

New York, Security Council on Friday unanimously adopted a resolution on extending “cross-border aid delivery operation” for extra six months.

The Council adopted the draft resolution on delivering the aid to Syria through Bab al-Hawa crossing and extending the effects of resolution no.2533 for year 2020 for more six months.

During a session of the Security Council following the adoption of the resolution, Permanent Representative of Syria to the United Nations, Bassam Sabbagh, said that the two delegations of Russia and China, in addition to other delegations exerted efforts to shed light on sides that serve improving the humanitarian condition and delivering aid to those who are in need inside Syria.

Sabbagh added that the western states insisted to ignore those sides and focused only on extending “cross-border aid delivery operation” that serves their agendas.

He stressed that the Western states turn a blind eye to Syrians’ suffering and they continue to violate Syria’s sovereignty and besiege its people.

Sabbagh added that Syria refuses that politicized operation as it violates the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, in addition to the grave faults that shaped its work along with the failure in ensuring delivering the aid to the needy people, not to the terrorists.

The Syrian diplomat stressed that the exaggeration of some states in describing that operation is misleading which aims to affect feelings of the public opinion.

Syria’s Representative to the UN concluded by saying that Syria is committed to fulfilling the humanitarian needs for its citizens and providing support for those who are in need to alleviate the negative repercussions caused by the terrorist war.
