UNITED NATIONS, January 12. /TASS/. Reports on starvation in Syria’s Madaya and claims that Damascus blocks the delivery of humanitarian assistance there are fabricated and are set to undermine the peace talks in Geneva due on January 25, Syria's UN Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari has said.
"The fact raises eyebrows that every time when a step forward is made towards political settlement in Syria, information about certain incidents is fabricated to belie the Syrian government and to negatively affect the political process," Ja'afari told reporters.
As Syrians prepare for the meeting in Geneva, certain regional and international players supporting terrorism in Syria are dissatisfied with how positively Damascus cooperates as part of a political process and try to "demonize" the Assad regime thus "torpedoing" peace talks.
The Syrian diplomat said the gunmen loot some aid and then sell the goods to the citizens at an inflated price. "They store the humanitarian aid at their warehouses and use it as a tool of political struggle," he said.
After a closed-door meeting of the UN Security Council on Monday, France’s envoy to the UN Francois Delattre said the prospect of launching the talks to end the conflict depends on the humanitarian situation in Syria.
