The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) was informed that Syrian government and opposition agreed on delivery of relief supplies to residents in the Syrian city of Homs, Reuters reported with the reference to an official of the UN humanitarian body on Tuesday. The organization is ready to deliver humanitarian aid to Homs after it receives “green light” from the Syrian government and the opposition.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon earlier said that numerous factions in the Syrian opposition and attacks on UN representatives have so far made it difficult to provide humanitarian aid safely. According to UN statistical data, over the last months militants from the Syrian opposition have kidnapped, wounded or killed tens of representatives of the UN other non-governmental organizations, as well as looted trucks with humanitarian products.
