The Russian Defense Ministry in a press release urged the UN to further its humanitarian efforts in Syria and contribute to the country’s restoration, on Tuesday.

“On September 26, a meeting between Deputy Head of the [Defense Ministry’s] International Military Cooperation’s main department, Major General Yevgeny Ilin and Deputy Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General Ramzy Ezzeldin Ramzy took place in Moscow. The situation in Syria and prospects of stronger humanitarian cooperation between the UN and the Russian Defense Ministry have been discussed,” the report says.

It was noted that “a Russian Defense Ministry official reported on national reconciliation committees’ activity in de-escalation zones and called on the UN to increase it humanitarian aid and provide help in the country’s post-war revival.”

“Establishment and normal operation of de-escalation zones provides conditions for a comprehensive process of political settlement of the Syrian conflict,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
