US, Russia agree for ‘sustained’ aid access to Syria


U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov have assured each other to ensure humanitarian aid access to Syria in “a sustained and unimpeded manner”. The two leaders also discussed the progress made in developing a draft set of modalities for a cessation of hostilities.

Kerry, Lavrov committed to ‘sustained’ aid access to Syria

US State Department spokesman John Kirby said in statement that Kerry and Lavrov discussed on phone Saturday the UN-led efforts to help aid access to Syria and cessation of hostilities in the war-torn country.

“The ministers viewed as promising the work of the humanitarian assistance task force, which was able to coordinate the delivery of food, water and medicine to thousands of Syrians in the majority of those areas identified as most in need by the UN,” Kirby said.

“They also re-committed themselves to ensuring that additional access be forthcoming immediately and that future deliveries be conducted in a sustained and unimpeded manner.”

Kerry and his Russian counterpart discussed the progress made in developing a draft set of modalities for a cessation of hostilities.

“Those modalities are not yet fully agreed upon, but both ministers appreciated the scope and attention to detail task force members applied in drafting them,” Kirby added.

The two task forces were created during the recent International Syria Support Group (ISSG) meeting in German city of Munich — co-chaired by Russia and U.S.

Delegates met Friday in Switzerland’s Geneva to talk about the decisions that members of ISSG had agreed last week, including what the cessation of hostilities for Syria would look like.

According to the deal inked in Munich humanitarian access to besieged areas in Syria would enter into effect this Friday, along with a nationwide cessation of hostilities.
