MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow suggests to the United Nations Security Council to send a special envoy to Syria in order to ensure security and delivery of humanitarian aid, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in its Twitter account on Tuesday.
“Russia suggests for the United Nations Security Council to instruct the UN Secretary General to send over a special envoy to Syria to ensure security and delivery of humanitarian aid,” the ministry said.
On Monday, Russia’s Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said that Russia would speak at the UN Security Council in the next couple of days on suggestion on humanitarian aid to Syria.
“The U.N. Security Council is contemplating strategies /with regard to Syria/ and could undertake concrete steps aimed at solving humanitarian issues, relying, among other things, on the fact that Damascus allowed the Red Cross to bring humanitarian aid to some regions,” he said.
