US to demand 'unhindered' aid deliveries to Syria at UN Security Council

The US plans to address border issues that have hindered the transfer of food, medicine and other aid into Syria at the next Security Council meeting, the State Department has announced.

State Department spokesperson Ned Price, in a statement on Friday, said Secretary of State Antony Blinken would push Russia and other UN Security Council members to allow more aid to enter Syria from Turkey.

Aid had been entering the war-torn country via Turkey through four border crossings that were approved by the 15-member council in 2014. Last July, however, the authorisations keeping the crossings open expired. Following several Russian and Chinese vetoes, all but the Bab al-Hawa crossing were closed indefinitely.
