MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia hopes that its partners in the UN Security Council will support the Russian initiative to dispatch a special envoy of the UN secretary general to Syria, spokesman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday.
“We are strongly concerned with the coming reports about a tense humanitarian situation in Syria. To find out the real situation Russia put forward an initiative in the UN Security Council to instruct the UN secretary general to send a special envoy to Syria to keep contacts with all parties to the conflict, including the Syrian government, and for a safe delivery of relief supplies,” the Russian diplomat noted.
Meanwhile, Russia supports the efforts of the Red Cross International Committee to reach an agreement between the Syrian authorities and the opposition for a two-hour daily ceasefire for relief supplies delivery and the evacuation of injured people, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
