During the meeting, held in New York on the sidelines of the activities of the UN General Assembly, the two sides also touched upon the issue of the return of Syrian refugees and overcoming obstacles that hinder their return.
Ambassador Sabbagh renewed Syria’s welcome of the return of all refugees to their homeland, and its keenness to provide all facilitations to ensure their return.
Sabbagh stressed that some Western countries are working to obstruct efforts to return refugees, in addition to continuing to implement illegitimate unilateral coercive measures imposed on Syria, which increase the suffering of Syrians.
