"The old city of Aleppo is a complete area of architectural monuments, with mosques, churches, Arab museums and historical buildings," he explained. All buildings have been affected by the (Syria) crisis and need to be restored and maintained. We look forward to our partners from Russia and China, these true friends, who have not given up Syria in difficult times, and we hope that they can provide assistance with the support of UNESCO.
