Beijing, SANA- China called for the immediate lifting of US unilateral coercive measures on Syria to provide emergency aid to those affected in the devastating earthquake and avoid further deterioration of its humanitarian situation.
“The US has long been engaged in the Syrian crisis. Its frequent military strikes and harsh economic sanctions have caused huge civilian casualties and taken away the means to subsistence of the Syrians”, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mao Ning’s on regular press conference cited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China,
\Mao Ning added, “the US troops continue to occupy Syria’s principal oil-producing regions. They have plundered more than 80% of Syria’s oil production and smuggled and burned Syria’s grain stock. All this has made Syria’s humanitarian crisis even worse”.
The Spokesperson underscored that the US should put aside geopolitical obsessions and immediately lift the unilateral coercive measures on Syria, to unlock the doors for humanitarian aid to Syria in the wake of the catastrophe.
