MOSCOW, September 18 (Itar-Tass) — The European Union highly appreciates Russia’s role in rendering humanitarian aid to Syria, Kristalina Georgieva, the European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, said on Tuesday after a meeting with Russian Minister for Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov.
“Russia meets its humanitarian commitments, the Russian Federation renders sizable assistance to Syria,” the commissioner said. She noted that humanitarian law must be number one concern in the delivery of assistance. “Politics is politics. But we must help people irrespective of that,” she stressed.
Kristalina Georgieva said humanitarian law must be observed in that issue and one must stick to humanitarian principles.
“The humanitarian situation in the world is rather difficult and coordinated efforts of the world community are important,” she stressed. The EU commissioner also specified that the European Union has allocated 119 million euros as humanitarian aid to Syria.
