On January 21st, Iran's permanent representative to the United Nations Majid Takht Rahwanji said that the unilateral economic embargo measures imposed on Syria are illegal and inhuman, calling for their immediate abolition.

“ The unlawful unilateral embargo measures imposed by America and some other countries on the Syrian people come at a time when these people are suffering from the spread of the Coronavirus, in addition to preventing the return of refugees to their homes, and preventing reconstruction, ”Fars News Agency quoted Rawanji as saying in his speech delivered during the meeting of the UN Security Council on political developments and humanitarian affairs in Syria.

Rawanji pointed to the importance of the Astana process in helping to crystallize the political process in Syria.

With regard to the war on terrorism,Rawanji said that the existence of terrorist groups and their criminal activities not only threaten the security and territorial integrity of Syria, but also pose a threat to regional peace and security.

Rawanji condemned the continued attacks of the Zionist entity against Syria and called for an immediate cessation of such provocative actions.

Rawanji concluded by affirming the position of the Islamic Republic of Iran to stand with the Syrian government and people in order to overcome the threats of terrorism and foreign occupation, and to work for reconstruction and ensure the unity and sovereignty of the Syrian lands.
