“Although the international community takes all required efforts, humanitarian situation in the country remains catastrophic. In this view, President Nursultan Nazarbayev took a decision to send humanitarian aid, namely food stuffs, to Syria. The 500 tonnes of cargo delivered in 33 containers includes primarily food stuffs and medications and is meant for the Syrian people suffering the consequences of the 6-year-long war. Kazakhstan backs the measures launched by the international community and the actions of the Syrian authorities and opposition aimed at soonest ceasefire and determining political future of Syria by means of dialogue and reconciliation,” Ambassador A.Berdybay said at a meeting with Syrian delegation which had come to Tartus to accept the aid.
