Syrian President: Humanitarian Case, State’s Priority
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad underlined the significance of humanitarian issues which he described as Syria's "top priority", and called for cooperation among the concerned bodies within the Syrian government.
During his meeting with members of the Higher Committee for Relief, President Assad underlined the necessity for making greater efforts by the bodies in charge of the humanitarian file, mobilizing all potential, and making optimal use of resources to fulfill the needs of all citizens who have been driven out of their homes due to the terrorist crimes.
The Syrian state is responsible for every Syrian citizen, not least those in areas to where they fled due to terrorist acts, but also in areas blockaded by terrorists, the President added, according to SANA.
He said the concerned ministries and bodies in Syria are making immense efforts in this regard and "have managed in several instances to get civilians out of besieged areas, relocating them to makeshift residential centers."
The President stressed the importance of ratcheting up cooperation between ministries and bodies working in the humanitarian sphere, citing the need for the delivery of assistance to all citizens without delay.
“The ultimate goal is getting every displaced Syrian citizen to return to his house safe and sound,” President Assad pointed out.
