President Khoja that Russia’s aggression against Syria undermines political settlement based on the Geneva I Communique during a meeting with UN envoy Staffan de Mistura in New York yesterday.
At meetings held with Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen and Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Coordinator of Emergency Relief Stephen O’Brien, President Khoja said that the regime’s attacks on civilians would further exacerbate the refugee crisis.
Khoja stresses that the escalating regime’s atrocities require greater and more effective response from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, particularly as the Assad regime violates all international agreements on delivery of humanitarian aid in Syria.
Vice-President Hisham Marwa and member of the political committee Fuad Aliko met with political director at the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Assistant Secretary in the Multilateral Policy Office in the Australian Foreign and Trade Ministry.
Marwa and Aliko expressed appreciation for Lithuania’s positive position at the UN Security Council in defense of the people of Syria, specifically its paying of the attention to the humanitarian crisis and the need for accountability.
They discussed the refugee crisis during the meeting with the Australian official, pointing for the need to a comprehensive approach by all members of the European Union to bear equal responsibility in the reception of refugees.
They also discussed the tragic humanitarian situation in Syria, while Marwa praised the role of Australia at adopting the UN Security Council Resolution 2139. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
