India, which is a vital supplier of Kovid-19 vaccines to countries around the world, has said that it is working with the United Nations and its agencies to ensure the supply of vaccines to the people of Syria facing the “severe” situation arising out of the pandemic. Looking forward to working together. India’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations K Nagaraj Naidu told the UN General Assembly’s High Level Panel on the Human Rights Situation in Syria that India stands with the Syrian people in this hour of need.
Naidu said, “The Syrian people have suffered a lot because of the 10-year-long Syrian conflict. The country is facing a difficult situation due to Kovid-19, winter weather and food insecurity, due to which the future of 17 million Syrian people, including 62 lakh displaced, is at risk. India has provided humanitarian assistance of $12 million through bilateral and multilateral channels and in July last year more than 10 metric tonnes of medical supplies were supplied to help Syria deal with the global pandemic. Earlier this month, 2000 metric tonnes of food was supplied.
Where earlier there were less COVID-19 cases, now it is increasing, is coronavirus shifting the area?
“We look forward to working closely with the United Nations and its agencies to ensure the supply of COVID-19 vaccines to the Syrian people,” Naidu said. Due to this, India is being widely praised.

Naidu said the latest reports of the Independent International Commission of Inquiry and the cases of human rights violations by the parties involved in the conflict show that the conflict has been internationalized due to the involvement of influential countries. “We appeal to all sides of the struggle to show political will to resolve the current impasse on the political path,” he said. He said terrorism has increased in Syria and the region due to the involvement of external elements.
