TEHRAN – Ali-Asghar Khaji, the Iranian foreign minister's special assistant for political affairs, on Wednesday called the sanctions against the Syrian people “inhumane” and said it is necessary to remove the bans as soon as possible.

In a phone talk with United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Geir O. Pedersen, Khaji called on the related international bodies to gear up the efforts in line with the lifting of the sanctions that have challenged the Syrian people’s lives in different forms, Mehr reported.

Khaji also highlighted the significance of helping the war-torn country retain its peace and stability in the fight against terrorism.

During the conversation, the two sides also conferred on other issues, including the provision of the grounds for the return of the Syrian refugees to their homeland and facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid packages to Syria, amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
