Iran calls for lifting of one-sided penalties against Syria

(MENAFN) Iran has urged to lift unilateral restrictions aimed at Syria and underlined the need for carrying out recovery projects that help restore basic services to the Syrian people.

Zahra Ershadi, Iran’s deputy diplomat to the UN, declared Iran supports the application of UN Resolution 2642 on Syria, which emphases on humanitarian assistance.

She commented in the first conference of the Informal Interactive Dialogue on Syria which was started according to UN Security Council Resolution 2642. The conference was organized by France and was joined by Martin Griffiths, Under-Secretary-General for humanitarian affairs.

“The adoption of Resolution 2642 (2022) was a significant step toward addressing Syria's critical needs. The resolution, which focuses on humanitarian assistance, specifically calls for early recovery projects and emphasizes the critical importance of expanding cross-line delivery throughout Syria, along with cross-border operations,” Ershadi added.

She also said, “The resolution calls for an Informal Interactive Dialogue in order to review and monitor the resolution's effective implementation on a regular basis, particularly the commitments to early recovery projects. We trust that IID will be able to serve as an appropriate mechanism for the Council to monitor how the resolution is being implemented fairly and effectively.”

Ershadi carried on by claiming, “Given the severity of the situation in Syria and the ongoing economic difficulties that have affected people across the country, we call for the implementation of the resolution in a balanced and efficient manner, including early recovery projects such as water systems, and electricity which are critical to restoring access to basic services. We urge all parties to carefully adhere to the basic principles governing humanitarian assistance, as well as to ensure neutrality and transparency. Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity must be also fully respected.”
