Damascus, SANA- Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Fayssal Mikdad, met on Thursday with Regional Director of World Food Program for the Middle East and North Africa, Corinne Fleischer and an accompanying delegation.
Talks during the meeting dealt with the activities and projects that the program is carrying out in Syria, including early recovery projects, in addition to the various developments related to the future plans of the program in line with the Syrians’ priorities and needs, in cooperation and coordination with the Syrian government and the national partners of the program in Syria.
He talked about the tragic effects left by the illegal and immoral unilateral sanctions imposed on the Syrian people by Western countries, as well as the high costs of the continuation of the US occupation that loots the Syrians and deprive them of their wheat, oil and food, and the effects of that on the livelihood of the Syrians.
In this regard, Mikdad noted to the need for the UN to reject any attempts to direct, divert or politicize humanitarian aid by some donors.
Fleischer affirmed the priority of focusing on early recovery projects.
