President al-Assad meets ICRC Chief

(Dp-news)

DAMASCUS- President Bashar al-Assad on Monday met Chairman of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Jakob Kellenberger and the accompanying delegation, according to state-run news agency SANA.

SANA said about the meeting “Kellenberger thanked President al-Assad for the cooperation and facilitations provided by the Syrian government to the delegation and providing access to various Syrian cities and areas in order to evaluate the situation in them and to visit the detention centers.”

SANA added “President al-Assad stressed the importance of direct examination of the situation in Syria, particularly in light of the massive media distortion of these facts. He also welcomed the Committee's work as long as it remains independent and objective and is not politicized.”



The meeting was attended by Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Dr. Fayssal Mikdad, the Director of the International Organizations Directorate at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry, and Chairman of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent Abdelrahman al-Attar.

On Sunday, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem briefed Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Jakob Kellenberger and the accompanying delegation on the current situations in Syria and what the armed groups practice of destruction, sabotage, killing and intimidation of the citizens.

ICRC Chief Jakob Kellenberger started a two-day visit to Syria Saturday. The visit aims to discuss gaining access for the first time to its prisons -- where thousands of activists and other civilians arrested in pro-democracy protests are believed to be held, according to ICRC statement on Saturday.
