Russia blames Washington for ‘deplorable situation’ in al-Rukban Camp
Russian Foreign Ministry said responsibility for the situation in al-Rukban camp reaching an impasse rests with the United States.
“The entire responsibility for the deplorable situation in the (Rukban refugee) camp rests with the United States which illegally occupies this region of the United Nations member state,” the ministry said in a statement on Monday.
“We call on the United States to immediately withdraw its troops from the area around al-Tanf and cede control over this territory to the Syrian government, which will take care of its citizens,” the ministry stressed, indicating that part of the humanitarian aid provided to the Camp’s locals have ended up in the hands of terrorists.
According to the statement, Moscow continues to propose initiatives to alleviate the suffering in al-Rukban Camp to ensure a permanent access to the camp through setting up a humanitarian corridor controlled by the Syrian government.
