Turkish spokesman says UN, UNICEF statement about potable water incomplete


(MENAFN)Turkey called on UN representatives in Syria to deal with humanitarian problems in an "impartial, neutral and independent manner.”

A joint statement about potable water in Syria "by the Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator for Syria, Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Syria Crisis and UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa contains factual mistakes as well as incomplete and misleading information.”

He further declared that “The Allouk Water Station is situated near the town of Ras al-Ayn, a part of an area held by the Syrian opposition, and the only source of power for the station as well as the whole region of Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ain is in the south," adding that The terrorist organization PKK/PYD and the regime deliberately obstruct the electricity to the Station and the region. These power cuts disable the functions of the Station to provide water and aggravate the humanitarian conditions in the region.”
