Having recently visited the Jibrin refugee camp in Aleppo, Belgian lawmakers are going to present their report on Russia’s humanitarian aid to Syria in Belgium’s Federal Parliament and in the European Parliament.

“Sanctions against Syria should be removed as soon as possible so that the Syrians could start receiving medical assistance and the necessary aid. We should apologize for the long inaction of our countries,” Belgian MP Filip Dewinter reported.

Moreover, Frank Creyelman of the right-wing Vlaams Belang party has emphasized the need to lift sanctions on Russia as well.

“Your country has been subject to European sanctions while providing humanitarian aid to Syria,” he said.
