DAMASCUS, (SANA)- Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem affirmed Syria's keenness on the security and stability of its citizens.
Al-Moallem's remark came during a phone call made by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon today afternoon during which the conversation touched upon the situation in the city of al-Qseir.
The Minister stressed that what the Syrian Arab Army is doing in al-Qseir is to help the citizens get rid of the armed terrorist groups and restore security and stability to the city and its countryside.
Al-Moallem expressed his wonder at "the rising voices on the situation in al-Qseir, whereas we didn't hear this worry when the terrorists seized the city and its countryside and committed the ugliest crimes against the citizens for over 18 months."
The Minister stressed that the Syrian authorities will allow the Red Cross, in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, to enter al-Qseir area immediately after the military operations end there.
