MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He underlined that the money must go to a "special fund, and the Syrian people will decide how to spend it."
"How does the West look at the task to rebuild Syria? They destroyed it, and now they see the task as an opportunity, if it brings them income. The issue that must be solved through negotiations, including negotiations with the UN, is the issue of compensation that those responsible for destruction of Syria must pay to Syrian people. And those must be the Western and Arabic countries," Jamil said during a press-conference at Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.
The so-called Arab Spring protests shook the Middle East in 2011. In Syria, the protests resulted in clashes between the government forces and opposition. Since then, the Middle Eastern country has been mired in a war, which involves Syrian army, numerous opposition factions, as well as terrorist groups.
The Syrian government delegation, as well as three opposition groups — the Riyadh-formed HNC, the Moscow-Cairo-Astana and the Hmeymim groups — have been taking part in the negotiations on the Syrian settlement.
