MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. The solution to the Aleppo humanitarian problem is not in Russia’s hands at the moment, Moscow calls for exerting pressure on the terrorists, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Thursday.
"The work (on Aleppo) is in progress, the militaries are in contact, various options have been discussed over the last few days," he noted. "The most important thing is that Russia and the Syrian government have been taking all possible steps to alleviate the difficulties that the residents of Aleppo are facing."
"You can see how reasonable and responsible the Russian military unit’s command has been while fulfilling the orders of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief," the deputy minister went on to say. "On November 4, a new humanitarian pause will be launched as Russian and Syrian warplanes haven’t been conducting any operations in this area for 17 days now."
"I would like address those who continue bashing Moscow for what is going on in Syria and have been looking for new pretexts. I call on them to remove their ideological blinders, and after all acknowledge the truth that it is not in Russia’s hand to decide whether the humanitarian problem in eastern Aleppo will be solved," he stressed. "Pressure needs to be exerted on the terrorists and extremists who are actually preventing these problems from being solved."
The efforts to solve the humanitarian situation in Syria’s Aleppo bump into the unwillingness of Russia’s partners to tighten the screws on terrorists, Russian deputy foreign minister reiterated.
"The aircraft of Russia’s Aerospace Forces have not been working in the Aleppo area for 17 days," Ryabkov said.
"The problems linked to easing the humanitarian situation in the city bump into the reluctance of those who confront Russia to exert pressure on terrorists," the diplomat stressed.
