The USA help the ISIS terrorists
The Syrian Foreign Ministry stated that the decision of the international donor conference in Brussels to provide a humanitarian aid to Syria, without firstly lifting the one-sided sanctions from Syria, is a form of an economic terrorism. «The goal of the policy of the collective punishment of the Syrian people by the USA and the EU is to destabilize the situation in Syria» — the ’SANA’ news agency quoted the statement. It was noted that «the West supports the activities of the terrorist and separatist groups».

A significant part of the aid is being sent to the nearby countries and to areas outside the control of Syria’’. The Syrian Foreign Ministry denounced the UN co-chairmanship at the forum in Brussels, which took place without the participation of the Syrian government. Damascus considers such step to be disrespectful for the sovereignty of Syria, and a violation of the UN Charter.
