Syrian Delegation Plane to Geneva-2 Blocked in Athens – Source

In-depth Report:

A plane with a Syrian delegation on board heading to the international Geneva-2 peace conference in Switzerland made a stop in Athens where the plane was denied refueling, Reuters reports citing Syrian television on Tuesday.

“The plane carrying the official Syrian delegation has been blocked for three hours at Athens airport because the Greek authorities refuse to provide it with fuel,” the source said.

Yesterday, the Syrian mass media reported that France closed its airspace for a plane carrying a Syrian delegation and flying to the Geneva-2 conference in Montreux, Switzerland.

French authorities denied that information later.
