The United States Permanent Representative to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, noted that this is the largest contribution from Washington at the Brussels donor conferences.
The United States will allocate an additional $800 million for humanitarian aid to Syria. This was stated on Tuesday by the Permanent Representative of the United States to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, following the results of participation in the donor conference in Brussels. Her words are quoted by the press service of the permanent Mission of the United States to the UN.
“I am proud to announce that the United States will provide $800 million for new humanitarian aid to the Syrian people. This is the largest contribution from the United States at the Brussels donor conferences,” she said.
The current donor conference in Brussels is being held for the sixth time. The United States refuses to cooperate with the Syrian authorities to provide humanitarian aid to those in need, sending it to opposition supporters in Idlib province from Turkey.
Thomas-Greenfield added that she intends to visit one of these checkpoints in Bab al-Hawa in the coming days.
Russia in the UN Security Council has consistently advocated assistance through Damascus in coordination with the central authorities of Syria. The issue of extending the cross-border assistance mechanism, which the United States prefers to use, will be considered by the UN Security Council in early July.
