Iran PressAmerica: Vasily Nebenzia said: "Based on the available information, despite the so-called humanitarian exemptions of the United States, it is impossible to send heavy construction vehicles to Syria, which are very necessary to remove the debris and clean up the destroyed areas under the control of the government."

Meanwhile, the UN Special Rapporteur Alena Douhan previously said: "Complete economic and financial isolation" caused by Western sanctions has weakened Syria's ability to respond to the needs of the people.
