Mikdad, Lazzarini stress the important role of UNRWA in supporting needs of Palestinian refugees

Damascus, SANA- Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Dr. Fayssal Mikdad, meeting on Thursday with Commissioner-General of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Philippe Lazzarini, stressed the increasing importance of the Agency role in supporting the needs of Palestinian refugees.

Mikdad noted to the importance of the continuous visits of UN officials to Syria to obtain a clearer view of the inhumane impact of unilateral economic sanctions on the Syrian people and Palestinian refugees, especially after the devastating earthquake that hit Syria.

Mikdad pointed out that the politicized dealings of some countries that claim to be concerned for the Syrian and Palestinian people shows that they are the countries that stand in the face of resolving the Palestinian Cause and the return of Palestinian refugees to their homeland, warning that prolonging the crisis undermines the trust of peoples and countries in international organizations.

Lazzarini thanked the Syrian government for the great support it provides to UNRWA work in Syria, which recently resulted in the rehabilitation of the Yarmouk camp and the return of the locals and normal life to it, in addition to its continuous support to the Palestinian refugees in Syria.
