MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russia has provided urgent humanitarian assistance for Syrian refugees in Iraq and will continue helping people in Syria, Russia's foreign ministry said on Wednesday.
“On October 22, Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations’ plane delivered the first batch of humanitarian aid to the Iraq city of Erbil,” the ministry said. “The 37-tonne cargo brought vital and most essential things as tents, blankets and foodstuffs to Syrian refugees who are currently in the northern region of the country known as Iraqi Kurdistan.”
“Humanitarian action has been gratefully accepted by the Iraqi government, the Kurdistan regional government and the people of the country,” the ministry added. “Russia will continue its assistance to the refugees from the Syrian Arab Republic who are in neighbouring countries at the moment, as well as to the affected population in Syria.”
“We assume in Moscow that an early political settlement of the Syrian crisis through the Geneva Communiqué of 30 June 2012 will provide a solution to the problem of Syrian refugees and enable us to stop violence and people’s suffering in Kurdistan region,” the ministry said.
