The Syrian Foreign Minister stressed that the issue of the return of Syrian refugees to their country has been openly politicized by Western countries.
According to News i, quoting the website of Russia Today, Faisal Meqdad, the Syrian Foreign Minister, said at the joint Syrian-Russian meeting to follow the plans of the International Conference on the Return of Syrian Refugees and Refugees in Damascus: There is intense work. Relevant international countries and institutions have publicly set their sights on preventing the return of most displaced persons. They pursue this issue by achieving political goals that are contrary to the goals and objectives of the UN Charter and the national interests of Syria.
Meqdad noted that the latest signs of this policy by Western countries were the holding of the Fifth Brussels Conference in March to support the future of Syria and the region in March without the participation or consultation of the Syrian government. In order to put pressure on the country, they want to use the issue of Syrian refugees as a political tool for the purposes of several Western countries.
The Syrian Foreign Minister called on the international community and UN agencies to provide the necessary support to Syrian refugees, Syrians and host countries to ensure the right of migrants to return to their country and to mislead efforts to tarnish the internal image of the country by promoting Alternative homeland settlement to the detriment of the right of return.
The head of the Syrian diplomatic service praised the support of friendly countries in facilitating the return of migrants, led by Russia, as the two Syrian-Russian coordination delegations work to provide all kinds of support to ensure the voluntary and safe return of migrants and to provide suitable living conditions.
The Syrian government reiterated the need for the commitment of the relevant international organizations to the humanitarian effort agreed upon by all the member states of the organization in order to exclude the issue of asylum seekers and humanitarian efforts from political programs and betting.
