UNITED NATIONS, October 7. /TASS/. The United Nations Security Council will hold a meeting on the initiative of Russia on the situation in Aleppo, to discuss the proposal of UN Secretary General Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura on the withdrawal of the militants of the terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra from the eastern part of the city. Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations told TASS, the meeting is scheduled for 10:00 New York time (17:00 MSK).
"The meeting will be held at 10:00," the Mission’s press service told TASS. The meeting, which will be held behind closed doors, was included in the Council's work program for Friday.
Staffan de Mistura on Thursday proposed to hold consultations on withdrawal of organization Jabhat al-Nusra militants from eastern Aleppo to Idlib. This, according to him, might end armed confrontation in this part of town, and its residents will have access to humanitarian aid. According to him, there are about 900 organization Jabhat al-Nusra fighters in eastern Aleppo.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the initiative "deserves careful consideration." "We focus on always looking for constructive steps," Lavrov added.
