Moscow, SANA- Russian Foreign Ministry said Moscow highly appreciates Greece’s decision to allow Russian aid aircrafts bound for Syria to use the Greek airspace.

“Russia appreciates the commitment of the Greek partners to principles and their respect for the bilateral relations between the two countries”, the Russian TASS News Agency quoted Maria Zakharova, the Ministry’s spokeswoman, as saying to reporters, adding that “Athens’ position reflects a deep understanding of the difficult humanitarian situation in Syria”.

A Greek diplomatic source announced Sunday that the Greek authorities refused a US request to block its airspace to Russian planes carrying humanitarian aid to Syria.
