DAMASCUS, 5/12/2012 – Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem, stressed that Syria is defending its people against the armed terrorist attacks and the terrorists who come from several countries.

Meeting Commissioner-General of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) Filippo Grandi on Wednesday, the two sides reviewed cooperation between Syria and the organization in light of the attack launched against Syria.

Minister al-Moallem stressed that Syria will not delay in providing help to the UNRWA.

Al-Moallem briefed Grandi on the conspiracy hatched against Syria, indicating that the armed terrorist groups are destroying the infrastructure of the Syrian economy, terrifying civilians, killing them and committing crimes against them in line with the war they waged against the Syrian Arab Army.

He referred to the terrorist attack against al-Bteiha School in al-Wafideen Camp in Damascus Countryside on Tuesday which led to the martyrdom of nine students and a teacher.

In turn, Grandi expressed appreciation for the aid provided by the Syrian government to the Palestinian refugees.

He stressed that the UNRWA is still working in Syria, rejecting all attempts to get the Palestinian refugees involved in the crisis in Syria.

Grandi added that the Palestinians’ main cause is their adherence to the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights.

Earlier, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad met Grandi. Mikdad stressed the importance of preserving the UNRWA services provided to the Palestinian refugees.
