Moscow regrets Washington’s opinion that efforts to rebuild Syria should begin only after the political transition of power is over, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Egypt’s Al Ahram newspaper published on Saturday.

According to Lavrov, efforts of post-war reconstruction and humanitarian assistance are now taking the center stage in the country.
"We need to help all Syrians in need, without preconditions and politicization," Russia’s top diplomat said. "In this respect, we regret the stance of the United States and the European Union, who keep linking - including publicly - the allocation of funds for rebuilding Syria to the political transition. If this is not politicization of humanitarian assistance, then what is?"
He added that Moscow keeps rendering all possible support to Damascus in rebuilding infrastructure and delivering humanitarian cargo both through bilateral channels and via international mechanisms, including the UN and its agencies.
