Damascus, SANA_ A plane loaded with medical assistance offered by the Republic of Pakistan, landed at the Damascus International Airport on Sunday.

The aid, which includes medicines and medical equipment and supplies, aims at supporting the efforts of the Syrian health sector to confront the novel Coronavirus.

In a statement to journalists after receiving the aid, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Dr. Faisal Mikdad expressed the gratitude of the Syrian people for this generous gesture by friends and brothers in Pakistan.

Mikdad said that today's shipment is the largest shipment ever received by Syria during the health crisis, saluting the leadership and people of Pakistan for supporting Syria, not only in difficult health conditions but in joint action against terrorism.

The Pakistani ambassador in Damascus, Saeed Mohammad Khan, indicated that it had been agreed to send medical aid weighing 25 tons of important supplies that help dealing with the Coronavirus.

He pointed out that the aid includes personal protection materials and will be distributed to hospitals and the concerned authorities in the Ministry of Health.

Deputy Minister of Health, Ahmad Khleifawi, stressed the importance of this aid to support the health sector in Syria which had suffered throughout the years of war and still suffers from the economic embargo and unjust unilateral coercive measures that prevent the arrival of many medical materials and equipment.

Its a very significant step. Its very satisfying Pakistan is not picking sides. I can imagine the kind of pressure Saudi and UAE would have been exerting on Pakistan to choose sides. But Pakistan should help Syrians out of brotherhood. Its a country which has been ruined by terrorism which has been assisted by rich Arab states whose interests in the region align with Israel.
How about you pull your head out of your butt for once and use google? No one is stopping anyone from giving humanitarian aid

Pakistan sent a plane-load of medical aid to the Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday, making it the largest shipment the country has received since the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, according to Deputy Foreign Minister Dr Faisal Mikdad in a statement to Syrian state-run SANA news agency.


The aid arrived at Damascus International Airport and included medicines and medical equipment and supplies. The shipment was accompanied by a number of Pakistani officials who were received by Mikdad. The official thanked the leadership and people of Pakistan for supporting Syria not only during a difficult health crisis but in joint action against terrorism, the agency reported.
Current official statistics place the number of confirmed coronavirus cases at almost 6,000 with just over 300 reported deaths.
Pakistani Ambassador to Damascus, Saeed Mohammed Khan, said that his country had agreed to send medical aid weighing 25 tonnes to help Syria’s health sector confront the pandemic. He noted that the aid includes personal protection materials and will be distributed to hospitals and the concerned authorities operating under the Ministry of Health.

Deputy Minister of Health, Ahmad Khleifawi, also stressed the importance of this aid to support Syria’s health sector which had suffered throughout the years of war and continues to be affected by foreign imposed sanctions that prevent the arrival of many medical materials and equipment.
Despite efforts by some nations to isolate Syria diplomatically and pressure Pakistan to take a stance against Damascus, Islamabad has maintained relations with the Syrian Arab Republic and several citizens work and live there. Last month, Pakistani and Syrian officials in Islamabad reportedly considered launching direct flights between the two countries.
