Speaking at a meeting organized by the government of the Daraa province in the predominantly Christian town, Col. Yuri Zrayev from Russia’s reconciliation center stressed that Russia was mediating a lasting peace between Syria’s warring parties.
“The reconciliation process helps bring families divided by the war back together and return them to their homes,” he stated.
Earlier on Thursday, the Russian center passed three tonnes of humanitarian aid to the residents of Syria’s Homs province and provided medical assistance to dozens of people. More humanitarian aid convoys are being formed for residents of the Hama Governorate, according to the Russian military.
