“The existing difficult situation in our country is being aggravated by the coronavirus and unreasonable sanctions by Western states. In these conditions, we see the importance of organizing such events, ”Riad Haddad, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Syrian Arab Republic to Russia, said at the meeting with young Syrian doctors which was held on October 13 in Moscow.
He also expressed gratitude to the Russian Federation for its assistance and support in this difficult period for Syria, especially noting the fact that medical staff is highly demanded because of constant terrorist attacks in Syria.
