He added that great number of Russian public and official sides started to send humanitarian aid to Syria to alleviate the sufferings of the Syrian people and ease the effects of the unjust western sanctions on the country.
He pointed to the Russian-Syrian mutual understanding on the importance of unifying efforts against terrorism and simultaneously establishing an international coalition with the aim of preserving the unity and integrity of Syria.
