Syria aid resolution adopted by UN
Feb 24, 2014

The 15-nation UNSC, vote on the resolution for the humanitarian aid to Syria. The resolution aims at boosting humanitarian access in Syria that threatens to take 'further steps' in the case of non-compliance, demands cross-border aid access and condemns rights abuses by the Syrian government and opposition armed groups.

It is co-authored by Australia, Jordan and Luxembourg. The resolution demands that all parties, in particular the Syrian authorities, "promptly allow rapid, safe and unhindered humanitarian access for UN humanitarian agencies and their implementing partners, including across conflict lines and across borders, in order to ensure that humanitarian assistance reaches people in need through the most direct routes".

Russia and China support the Syrian government and have vetoed three previous resolutions backed by Western nations that would have pressed Syrian President Bashar Assad to end the three-year conflict.
