Dichiarazione del Portavoce del Segretario Generale sulla proroga dell’autorizzazione all’invio di aiuti umanitari transfrontalieri in Siria

Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General – on the extension of the authorization of cross-border humanitarian aid into Syria 


The Secretary-General is disappointed that the Security Council was not able to reach agreement today on extending the authorization of United Nations cross-border relief operations in Syria.

UN cross-border assistance remains a veritable lifeline for millions of people in north-west Syria as humanitarian needs have reached an all-time high since the start of the conflict, while the impact of the devastating February earthquakes still acutely felt.

The Secretary-General calls on all Council members to redouble their efforts to support the continued delivery of cross-border assistance to millions of people in dire need in north-west Syria for the longest possible period.
