"The government is rebuilding and trying to bring everything to work in Syria, even private and public institutions are working together, and the government is trying its best but we need the help of the international community and friends, Russian Federation, Iran, China, some other countries, to help us rebuild what has been destroyed by terrorists," Atieh said.
Atieh added the international community representatives occasionally hold conferences, where it is stated that the support for Syrian people will be provided, but "on the ground, they don’t do it."
"Seventy-five percent of the humanitarian assistance provided to the Syrians inside Syria is done by the government," Atieh noted.
"The Kurdish issue is just brought to the surface. We didn’t have this issue before. We didn’t have and we don’t have a Kurdish issue or an ethnic issue in Syria… Syria is a multi-ethnic and multi-confessional country, all people are Syrian citizens," Atieh said.
According to the ambassador, the Kurdish issue in Syria has been intentionally presented as a problem by some powers working against the Syrian government.
"The Kurds are Syrian citizens. But during the crisis, some groups were polarised by some powers just to exert more pressure on the Syrian government," Atieh explained.
Syria has been in a state of civil war for over five years now, with the government forces fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.
