MOSCOW, July 4. /TASS/. All international players should provide humanitarian aid to Syria without attempting to politicize the issue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters at a news conference on Wednesday following talks with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi.
"We are certain that all international players who have such opportunities should provide assistance in tackling these issues in Syria without trying to link this aid to some politicized conditions," he noted.
"Russia has repeatedly pointed to the need to remove unilateral sanctions imposed on Syria by Western countries, the sanctions that prevent the creation of normal economic infrastructure conditions for refugees’ return," Lavrov noted.
The Russian minister stressed that Russia and Jordan see eye-to-eye about the need to provide humanitarian aid and take measures, which will facilitate and expand the delivery of relief aid. "To create favorable conditions for refugees’ return in the liberated areas, large-scale international assistance aimed at restoring the socio-economic infrastructure and creating new jobs is required," he added.
