The U.S. and its allies continue to misinform the international community about the situation in Syria, which hinders the process of return of Syrian citizens to their homeland, according to a joint statement of interagency coordination headquarters of Russia and Syria.
“The Syrian government is carrying out colossal work to establish a peaceful life in the country. The UN agencies have recognized the compliance of the created conditions of residence of returning citizens with international humanitarian norms. Nevertheless, the U.S. and its allies continue to misinform the international community about the situation in the SAR”, – the statement reads.
As noted, such actions by the U.S. impede the return of Syrians to their homeland. The statement also emphasizes that in order to justify the legitimacy of its presence in the SAR and to further maintain control over oil fields, the U.S. authorities are trying to maintain hotbeds of tension in Syria by any means possible.
According to the data of Mikhail Mizintsev, the head of the national defense center of the Russian Federation, and Hussein Makhluf, the Minister of Municipal Administration and Ecology of Syria, the problem of the refugee camp “Rukban” in the 55-kilometer zone of Et-Tanf occupied by the USA remains acute. The situation also remains critical in the Al-Khol refugee camp in Al-Hasakah province.
We believe it is necessary to stress that a share of responsibility for this state of affairs is borne by those European countries that refuse to take away their own citizens who fought on the side of ISIS with all truth and wrong”, – reads the statement.
In addition, the parties pointed to the large number of improvised explosive devices, booby traps and other explosive hazards left by militants in Raqqa, calling on the international community to participate in humanitarian demining.NATO armed democracy in Europe: ‘achievents’ and threats
