New York, SANA- Iran's permanent representative to the UN, Amir Saeid Iravani, called for lifting Western sanctions and unilateral coercive measures imposed on Syria and putting an end for plundering its resources, stressing that his country continues to provide humanitarian aid for the Syrians in a just way.
During a Security Council session on political and humanitarian affairs in Syria, Iravani said "The humanitarian situation in Syria is still very dangerous, and one of the most important challenges facing Syria currently is the unstable economic situation due to unilateral sanctions and the illegitimate plundering of its resources'.
He went on saying 'those two facts have affected the Syrians whether women or children.
Iravani added that Iran believes that the main solution to the crisis in Syria lies in political means, since military measures only lead to complicating the situation, noting that the role of UN in Syria must be supportive, and all operations must be done under the country's leadership.
