President: Iran to continue sending relief aids to Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani deplored a possible US attack on Syria, and underlined that the Islamic Republic will continue dispatch of it humanitarian aids to the Muslim country.

“Under difficult living conditions of the Syrian people, the (Iranian) government will continue sending its humanitarian aid and assistance (to them) while condemning any hostile act against the regional countries, specially Syria,” President Rouhani said Wednesday.

Last month, Iran distributed its latest humanitarian aid supplies among Syrian and Palestinian civilians in Syria on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan (ended August 8).

The aid cargo included foodstuff and medicine.

Iran dispatched its fourth consignment of humanitarian supplies, including medicines and medical equipment, to Syria in July in a bid to help people affected by the unrest in the Muslim country.

The Islamic Republic also sent several ambulances to Syria last month.

Iranian officials have repeatedly underlined that Tehran is in favor of negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups to create stability in the Middle Eastern country.

Last November, Iran hosted a meeting between the representatives of the Syrian government and opposition to encourage them to start talks to find a political solution to their problems. The National Dialogue Conference kicked off work in Tehran mid November with the motto of ‘No to Violence, Yes to Democracy”.

The meeting brought together almost 200 representatives of various Syrian ethnicities, political groups, minorities, the opposition, and state officials.
