Deputy permanent representative to the UN Vladimir Safronkov said Russia blocked a statement of UN Security Council on the humanitarian situation in Idlib. About it reports TASS.
According to him, contributions from Belgium, Germany and Kuwait, distort the real situation in the Syrian province.
Zampolpreda noted that now among colleagues, including from the United States, there is a discussion of the situation in Syria according to the professional, military and political channels. “Of course, our American partners understand the situation in the Syrian theater, so no need to create a SB in virtual reality, saying that there is no dialogue. In fact, apart from the cameras, Newspapers and journalists is practical work,” — said Safronov.
He added that the Russian side insists on respect for the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Syria, not in words but in deeds.
The Northern area of de-escalation in Idlib province was created in 2017. In 2018, Moscow and Ankara have agreed to patrol the area. It is believed that there are members of international terrorist groups, and rebel groups not belonging to the militants.
A large part of the region controlled by the group “Hayat Tahrir al-sham” (created on the basis of “Dzhabhat EN Nusra”). In Moscow claim that some Western countries want to keep in Idlib “enclave of terrorism”.
