Damascus, SANA – Syria has repeatedly affirmed, through the statements of its senior officials and concerned institutions, that it welcomes the return of all displaced Syrians to their homeland, an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said on Thursday.
“The Syrian state is ready to shoulder all its responsibilities to secure a safe and decent return for its citizens who were forced by the difficult circumstances Syria has gone through to leave their home towns and villages,” the source stated.
Out of its keenness on its citizens’ interest, Syria, the source added, “renews its call on our people in al-Rukban camp to leave the camp and return to their home towns and villages.”
“The Syrian state will provide all the facilitations to transport the citizens from the camp to their places of residence and all other facilitations to achieve that end,” the source said.
Syria, the Ministry’s source went on saying, reiterates that “the responsibility for the humanitarian crisis of our people in al-Rukban camp falls solely on the US occupation forces and their tools, as they have been preventing the Syrian citizens’ departure by means of force and through threats, in spite of the fact that safe corridors have been opened for those who are willing to leave the camp.”
