India has once again made a statement in support of the series. India has said it stands with the Syrian people. This was stated by TS Tirumurthy, Permanent Representative of India to the United Nations. T.S. Tirumurthy said India was still standing by the Syrian people. He said India had sent more than 2,000 metric tonnes of rice to Syria earlier this month after appealing to the Syrian government for emergency humanitarian aid.
He said that humanitarian aid in Syria should take into account Syria’s independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty across the border or in the crossline. All parties need to protect health and humanitarian workers.
