MOSCOW, August 9. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry counts on practical assistance from the Chinese and Serbian military in conducting a humanitarian operation in Syria’s Aleppo.
"Alongside the interested response from international humanitarian organizations there have been specific proposals for the participation of the defense ministries of a number of countries in extending humanitarian assistance to Aleppo," the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.
"The Russian Defense Ministry is grateful to the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Serbia, who were the first to come out in support of the Russian-Syrian initiative for conducting the humanitarian operation.
