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. We count on further practical steps by these countries’ defense ministries in support of the Russian efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to the population of Aleppo."
