Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem reaffirmed the Syrian government’s commitment to meeting the basic needs of its people in an effort to bolster the public’s resilience in the fight against terrorism.
During a meeting with UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Stephen O’Brien on Sunday, Muallem said it is necessary that UN organizations comply with the rules of their humanitarian work and aid-providing missions, stressing that national reconciliations are given priority in the Syrian government’s program to restore security and stability to the country.
O’Brien said his visit aims at undertaking work on the ground and following up on aid delivery efforts, expressing appreciation for the Syrian government’s cooperation in making these efforts bear fruit.
Earlier, O’Brien and a UN delegation visited the neighborhood of al-Waer, Homs, where a ceasefire settlement reached earlier this month is being implemented to clear the neighborhood of weapons and fighters.
