Germany to Allocate $1.63Bln As Humanitarian Aid to Syrian Population - Foreign Minister

Germany intends to allocate 1.44 billion euros ($1.63bln) as humanitarian assistance to the Syrian population, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Thursday, commenting on agreements reached at the third international donor conference on Syria in Brussels

BERLIN (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th March, 2019) Germany intends to allocate 1.44 billion Euros ($1.63bln) as humanitarian assistance to the Syrian population, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Thursday, commenting on agreements reached at the third international donor conference on Syria in Brussels.

"After eight years of war, the situation in Syria has ceased to be daily in the news headlines - but the suffering of people does not subside. The developments in Idlib cause our particularly great concern. The resumption of hostilities should be avoided at all costs. Until Syria has created safe and decent conditions for voluntary return, the world should not leave people there and in neighboring countries. That is why Germany will allocate a total of 1.44 billion euros at the conference in Brussels this year," Maas said.
