The minister appealed to the international organizations to show support to the Syrian government’s work in providing shelter to the displaced people to alleviate their suffering that is caused by terrorism, the unjust economic siege, and the theft of Syrian resources by the U.S. and Turkish occupation forces.

In a press statement, Grandi indicated that the two sides agreed during the meeting to speed up the response provided by the UNHCR and other international organizations in coordination with the Higher Relief Committee, which will benefit the return of the displaced and society as a whole, while facilitating the return of refugees to Syria.
