MOSCOW, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. The Syrian government and the opposition have agreed to deliver humanitarian aid to the city of Homs, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.
“A problem is being solved to deliver humanitarian aid to the old quarters of Homs. According to latest reports, an agreement to this effect has been reached between the government and the opposition. This is a positive signal,” Lukashevich said.
“We believe that an unbiased and non-politicized approach is capable of giving an effective result and ease the suffering of civilians,” he said.
“Practically every day we maintain contacts with the Syrian authorities and we convince partners to develop constructive cooperation with corresponding international humanitarian agencies in order to improve the state of peaceful civilians and reach agreement on local reconciliation and getting access to humanitarian aid delivery to all groups of the population,” the diplomat said.
“Damascus sanctioned the transportation of humanitarian aid by the existing corridors in Lebanon and Jordan. Humanitarian terminals have been opened in Aleppo and Qamishli in addition to Damascus, Homs and Tartus,” the spokesman said.
“Within the program over 10 flights will be made to send over 400 tons of humanitarian cargoes to the population,” he added.
