MOSCOW, February, 16. /TASS/. Russia’s Ministry of Defense counts on the UN to contribute humanitarian assistance to Syria and to overcome hurdles in delivering medical supplies and equipment to the country, minister Sergey Shoigu said at Thursday’s meeting with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
"It is very important for us to continue bolstering the return to organized civilian life in the region. And we hope for assistance from the UN and other humanitarian organizations regarding fair and equal distribution of humanitarian aid in Syria," Shoigu stated.
According to him, this applies to the East Ghouta, Deir ez-Zor and other besieged areas.
"These are essential measures against terrorism in Syria. Furthermore, bearing in mind that today many Syrian opposition groups fight against terrorist groups," he added.
