MOSCOW, September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Terrorism in the Middle East, including in Syria, must be fought in compliance with the UN Charter, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Wednesday.
He was speaking at a high-level international meeting on the humanitarian situation in Syria on the sidelines of the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York. Over 50 states, including Syria’s neighbors, took part in the meeting.
The participants in the meeting “took a common stance under which humanitarian problems in Syria continued to be complicated. Civilians experience shortage of foodstuffs, medicines and basic necessities. The situation aggravated due to the threat of terrorism from extremist and terrorist organizations that stepped up their activities in the region”, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“The parties stressed the need to intensify international efforts aimed at invigorating the humanitarian situation not only in Syria, but also in the whole region. They emphasized the importance to work jointly to remove the initial causes of destabilization in Syria and adjacent countries,” the ministry said.
