HUMANITARIAN AID DELIVERED TO SYRIA’S ALEPPO – US STATE DEPARTMENT
WASHINGTON, Mar 22 – A delivery of humanitarian aid has been made to Syria’s largest city Aleppo, amid the mid-Feb internationally-agreed Cessation of Hostilities deal for Syria, a US official confirmed on Monday.
“I’m told there was yet another delivery today, near or in Aleppo. So I mean, that’s ongoing,” US State Department spokesman, John Kirby, told a press briefing on foreign affairs.
The matter will be receiving further discussion, when US State Secretary, John Kerry, holds talks with officials in Moscow between Mar 22 and 25, as the US wants to see more deliveries, and for those deliveries to be faster, he added.
Going into detail, he expected events in Syria to be “front and centre on the agenda” of the talks in Russia, particularly with regards to the Cessation of Hostilities, along with the UN-brokered Geneva talks, between the Syrian opposition and the government.
Ukraine will also be a topic of discussion, he added
