MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Syrian government is ready to support any humanitarian operations on its soil if they are agreed on with Damascus, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad told Sputnik.

"I would like to say that the Syrian government provides all the regions with humanitarian aid. While upholding regular contacts with UN humanitarian organizations, it has created a plan to deliver aid everywhere. Any operation of this sort is carried out in coordination with our government and is deemed unacceptable without it, therefore, we do agree on any [humanitarian] operation if it is agreed with us," the ambassador said in an interview.

Last week, the Syrian government said that it has supplied over 80 percent of all the humanitarian aid delivered to the population in areas controlled by terrorists.
