On Sunday, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Muallem, received Pierre Krähenbühl, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and the accompanying delegation.
During the meeting, the two sides discussed the distinguished relations between Syria and UNRWA and the pressures exerted on the Agency that targets the important role it plays in support of the brotherly Palestinian people.
Muallem reaffirmed Syria’s principled stance towards the Palestinian issue, which is the central Arab issue, and its full support to the Palestinian people in confronting attempts to liquidate their issue.
He pointed out that Syria has always been ready- in spite of the war targeting its stance and nationalistic decision- to provide everything possible to support the resilience of the Palestinian people and the restoration of their rights, usurped by the Israeli occupation entity with blatant support from the US.
Muallem pointed to Syria’s rejection of all attempts of nullifying UNRWA and targeting the key role it plays in providing all sorts of support to the Palestinian people inside and outside the Palestinian territories, stressing Syria’s continuing support of UNRWA to keep it providing its services to the brotherly Palestinians.
For his part, the UNRWA Commissioner-General expressed gratitude to the Syrian government for continued support of UNRWA and the Palestinian refugees in Syria, stressing the Agency’s keenness on developing and boosting the distinguished relations with the Syrian government, which are built on decades of mutual trust.
