MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Western statements that Russia had been allegedly hindering supplies of humanitarian aid to Syria "are not true," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday.
Lavrov said that such statement had been recently voiced by the leaders of six Western countries, namely by the United States, Britain, Germany, Italy, France and Canada.
"This is not true, to put it mildly," the top Russian diplomat said.
"We have been accused of allegedly restraining the Syrian authorities from giving their consent for the UN humanitarian aid plan. This is also not true," Lavrov said.
"The government of Syria has granted its consent, but it is a totally different issue that militants failed to properly sign this [UN humanitarian aid] plan and statements made by this Western Six about the alleged existence of the consent from militants are not true as well," Lavrov added.
