HANGZHOU, September 5. /TASS/. On Monday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel emphasized the role Russian President Vladimir Putin could play in establishing a truce in Aleppo to allow in humanitarian aid.
"I think Russian President Vladimir Putin could have a major influence on a ceasefire or a temporary cessation of hostilities in order to allow in humanitarian aid for the residents of Aleppo," Angela Merkel told a news conference following the G20 summit in China’s Hangzhou.
"This is extremely important and I made it clear during negotiations," she added. "Active negotiations between the US and Russia are underway and I hope they will soon yield result. We need a more longstanding truce," she stressed.
"Work on this is continuing. Time is short," Merkel noted.
