BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:15 A.M.) – Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari accused the US of “impeding the delivery of assistance to Rukban” camp, during a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting in New York City on Monday, to discuss the situation in Syria.

“It is very much in bad taste that some delegations, western delegations, are mixing politics and the humanitarian side of things. These delegations continue to set obstacles in the path of humanitarian access,” stated Jaafari.

“We have heard these same delegations set a number of political prior conditions that try to empty humanitarian action of all of its content and move it towards a political instrumentalisation of the suffering of the Syrian people,” Jaafari added.

In response to US Deputy Representative Jonathan Cohen claiming that Syria and Russia could not be trusted to uphold deescalation zone agreements, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Vladimir Safronkov replied that “Russia reserves the right to support the effective action of the Syrian government to eliminate hotbeds of terrorism.”

“Imposing ultimatums, off-the-shelf decisions, and extreme deadlines upon Syrians is incorrect and will not work. Work on all regional situations demonstrates that imposing anything is a mistaken methodology,” Safronkov added.

The meeting took place after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met in Istanbul on October 27, for a summit focused on the Syrian conflict.
