EU seeks Iranian help to deliver humanitarian assistance to Syria
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari said on Tuesday that the European Union sought n Iranian help to deliver humanitarian assistance to Syria, IRNA reported.
Speaking to IRNA, he said that deterioration of humanitarian situation has alarmed the humanity and the international community must respect the commitment to alleviate sufferings of the Syrian people caused by terrorism.
Regretfully,'We are now witnessing practice of instrumental use of terrorism as well as double standard polices adopted by certain states and international organizations about the Syrian crisis,' he said.
From early stages of the humanitarian crisis, the Islamic Republic of Iran independently and through Iran's Red Crescent has rendered relief aid to the needy people trapped in this crisis, he said.
Upon suggestion made by Switzerland government, a trilateral cooperation between Iran, Syria and Switzerland formed to render humanitarian assistance to Syria, he said.
