For more than 10 years, the Syrian people have been suffering from one of the biggest humanitarian problems in the world, the ambassador said on Wednesday before the UN Security Council meeting on the humanitarian situation in Syria and West Asia.
The international community is morally and politically responsible for the humanitarian situation in Syria, she added.
