President Assad underscored that Syria works on facilitating the return of refugees whether through rehabilitating the infrastructure that was damaged by terrorism and restoring security and stability in the liberated areas or through accelerating the reconciliation processes in a way that guarantees a safe return for the Syrian refugees and displaced people to their towns and villages.
Moreover, the President thanked the Russian leadership for the medical and humanitarian aid and the doses of Covid-19 vaccines they offered to Syria, praising at the same time Russia’s support to the Syrian people in all fields, including the efforts being exerted to help the Syrian refugees return to their Homeland.
For his part, Lavrentiev expressed confidence that Russia and Syria will reach tangible results due to the effective steps taken by the Syrian government to create appropriate conditions for the return of refugees.
He referred to Russia’s continued cooperation with Syria to overcome the difficulties and obstacles that may hinder the return of the Syrian refugees to their homeland.
