TEHRAN – At a meeting in Tehran on Sunday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian and Belgian special envoy for Syrian affairs Marc Otte discussed ways to send humanitarian aid to the Syrian people.
Amir Abdollahian elaborated on the volume of Iran’s food and medical aid to Syria since the crisis erupted in the country and pointed to Iran’s cooperation with some European countries, including Switzerland, to help the Syrian people in various parts of the country.
Otte, for his part, said that the Belgian government and people are concerned about the deteriorating living conditions in Syria and the problems to send aid to the people.
Otte said Belgian officials and non-governmental organizations are ready to cooperate with Iranian officials and NGOs to indentify the needs of the Syrian people and explore ways to send aid to people through the help of the Red Crescent Societies of Iran, Syria and other European countries. 
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution on Syria's humanitarian crisis on Saturday, demanding that both sides in the conflict provide immediate access to deliver essential aid to millions of people in desperate need.

Amir Abdollahian stated that campaign against terrorism and extremism and efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria are at the center of Iran’s attention.
