Leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran urge world to give Syria more aid

The leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran are urging the international community to provide more aid for war-ravaged Syria.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Russian President Vladimir Putin are calling for bigger humanitarian aid supplies, as well as assistance in clearing landmines and aid to help restore the destroyed infrastructure.

Speaking after today’s summit in Ankara, Erdogan points at the EU’s failure to deliver 3 billion euros in assistance he said it promised for helping restore Syria’s north. He adds that Turkey will continue to invest its own funds in rebuilding Syria.

Putin also issues a strong call to other nations to participate more actively in Syria’s restoration efforts.
