The European Union has refrained from providing assistance to Syria under the pretext of sanctions imposed on it, with all this assistance going to Turkey to help it cope with the consequences of the earthquake.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that all EU assistance is directed to Turkey to overcome the consequences of the earthquake.

The Greek prime minister intends to raise the issue at the European Council meeting today, and in the words of a Greek official: “There is no geopolitical problem here.”

“It’s not about recognizing any regime,” Mitsotakis said. “It’s about rescuing desperate people who desperately need our help.”

Yesterday, the head of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent called on the European community to lift the blockade and economic sanctions imposed on Syria in order to deal with the consequences of the devastating earthquake.

He said that economic sanctions are affecting the difficult humanitarian situation, and rescue operations are difficult, and there is no fuel even to send convoys, and this is due to the blockade and sanctions.

Areas in Turkey and Syria were hit by a massive earthquake on Monday morning that left thousands dead and injured and houses and infrastructure destroyed.
