MOSCOW, September 26. /TASS/. Moscow calls to take efforts to speed up the process of humanitarian deliveries to Syria’s Aleppo, Russian president’s special envoy for the Middle East and North Africa countries and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Monday.
"Work [on delivering humanitarian aid - TASS] never stops but now it is necessary to enhance this support," he said answering a TASS question.
Bogdanov said Moscow will continue supporting Damascus in its anti-terrorism efforts.
"I mean not only the Aleppo area, but the goals. The goal is to counter terrorists and naturally, we will offer support in anti-terrorism efforts," he said when asked whether Russia would support Syria’s anti-terrorist operation in Eastern Aleppo.
Earlier on Monday, Bogdanov has a telephone conversation with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari to discuss the development of the situation in Syria and emergency humanitarian assistance to that country.
The sides reiterated Moscow’s and Teheran’s readiness to cooperate closely with the Syrian government, the Syrian Arab Red Crescent and relevant United Nations structures on that track, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
