BERLIN, November 30. /TASS/. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier reiterated the need to ensure humanitarian aid access to Syria’s besieged city of Aleppo at a meeting with his Russian counterpart Tuesday, Germany’s DPA news agency reported citing sources in the German delegation.
During the meeting, Steinmeier asked Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to influence the Syrian government in order to make the delivery of humanitarian goods possible, the agency said.
"The Russian side was persistently asked to make delivery of humanitarian aid to civilians possible," the report says.
"The ministers shared the opinion that the military situation in Aleppo should not be a reason for abandoning the path of searching for a political solution," the report continues.
German diplomats also said the agency that talks on setting up a transitional government in Syria should resume.
