    KAZAKHSTAN – SYRIA

    Kazakhstan provides more humanitarian aid to Syria



    Aid (food and medicines) reached the Syrian port of Tartus. The “humanitarian situation in the country remains catastrophic,” said Kazakh Ambassador.

    Astana (AsiaNews/Agencies) – Kazakhstan sent about 500 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the people of Syria via the Syrian port of Tartus on 5 January, including flour, canned meat, rice, pasta and tea.

    “Although the international community takes all required efforts, the humanitarian situation in the country remains catastrophic,” said Kazakh Ambassador to Jordan Azamat Berdybai during a meeting with a Syrian delegation.

    “In this regard, President Nursultan Nazarbayev made a decision to send humanitarian aid, namely food, to Syria,” he added. “The 500 tonnes of cargo delivered in 33 containers include primarily food and medications and are meant for the Syrian people suffering the consequences of the six-year-long war”.

    This is not the first time that Kazakhstan has provided aid to the Syrian people. In 2012, it donated US$ 400,000 through the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to the governments of Jordan and Lebanon to provide humanitarian assistance to Syrians residing in refugee camps.

    Also, in October 2015, at the end of negotiations between representatives of the Syrian opposition in Astana, Kazakhstan agreed to provide US$ 316,600 in medicines, food and equipment for Syrian refugees based on the Turkish-Syrian border.

    The beginning of the Trump presidency has been characterised by the "babelisation" of American society. Each country pours out his hatred against an external enemy. The current global crisis has religious roots. At the heart of the chaos there is the Jihadi threat. The third world war cannot be won with drones, but with moderation and promoting rapprochement and discussions.

    Al Azhar under the influence of Daesh Islamism

    The official religious institutions and so-called Islamic universities are the cause of the immobility of the Muslim world. The programs taught and literature used at Al Azhar are the same that are applied on the ground by all armed terrorists. No comparison possible between Al Azhar and the Vatican. The Vatican has hosted Iraqi Muslims and Syrians fleeing the war. Al Azhar has never done anything for Christians and Yazidis. The persecution of Nasr Mohamed Abdellah, eager to modernize Islam. The comment of one Muslim student.
