During the meeting, Mekdad passionately emphasized the severe hardships faced by the Syrian population, directly resulting from the coercive measures imposed by Western nations on the country. 

He particularly condemned the deliberate water cut-off imposed by the Turkish occupation forces and their associated terrorist factions, which cruelly deprived the people of Hasaka of their fundamental need for water.

In a firm stance, Mekdad called upon all representatives present to raise awareness about these inhumane practices and urged them to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions, shedding light on the gravity of the situation.

An equally critical aspect that received attention during the discussions was the issue of Syrian refugees’ return. With assurance and commitment, Mekdad informed the attendees that the Syrian government is actively implementing appropriate measures to facilitate the safe and dignified return of refugees to their homeland.

Furthermore, the meeting also focused on the pressing matter of the shortage of funding for early recovery plans and humanitarian aid initiatives within Syria. Mekdad, in line with the Syrian government’s dedication to humanitarian efforts, emphasized the country’s commitment to facilitating humanitarian access throughout the nation.

During the dialogue, the representatives from various organizations displayed their deep understanding of the hardships faced by the Syrian citizens and expressed their unwavering commitment to intensify their efforts in improving humanitarian work and meeting the ever-increasing humanitarian needs in Syria.

This meeting served as a platform for meaningful collaboration and renewed determination to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people and create a positive impact in their lives during these challenging times.
