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."
The Defense Ministry said it was pushing ahead with efforts to promote a wide international campaign in support of the humanitarian operation in the city.
Official invitations to join the operation have been dispatched to the US military and to most European and Asian countries.
Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu declared the beginning of a major humanitarian operation in Aleppo on July 28. Several humanitarian corridors have been opened for the city’s civilians and militants prepared to lay down arms. Shoigu issued orders to arrange for the delivery of foods, medical supplies and essentials to Aleppo.
