MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. The humanitarian situation in Syria’s Aleppo in the context of possible relief measures was in focus of a telephone conversation between the Russian and German foreign ministers, Sergei Lavrov and Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the Russian foreign ministry said on Tuesday.
"The Russian side stressed inadmissibility of the actions by al-Nusra terrorists and extremists affiliated to them who block humanitarian deliveries to Eastern Aleppo and hinder medical evacuation from that city," the ministry said. "The sides stressed that representatives of the United Nations humanitarian agencies must be more resolute to have these obstacles removed, including relevant work with the countries that might influence the militants."
The two ministers also exchanged views on the Syrian settlement in the light of the recent talks between the leaders of Russia, France and Germany, Vladimir Putin, Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel, in Berlin on October 19.
Lavrov focused attention on the necessity of the United States’ unconditional implementation of its liabilities on the separation of terrorists and the opposition in Syria. "It is a key condition of the implementation of the United Nations Security Council and International Syria Support Group resolutions and the approaches to the crisis settlement that were discussed in Lausanne on October 15," the ministry noted. "The two ministers agreed to maintain regular expert dialogue between the two countries’ foreign ministries on all aspects of the Syrian settlement.
The conversation was initiated by the German side.
