Obama: USA will not cooperate with Russia on Syria until violence reduces

Barack Obama

U.S. President Barack Obama expressed his deep regret regarding the fact that Syrian government is blocking the delivery of humanitarian aid.

This was stated in a statement of the White House.

At a meeting with members of the National Security Council, Obama stressed that the U.S. will not proceed with the next steps in the arrangement with Russia “until we see seven continuous days of reduced violence and sustained humanitarian access”.

Earlier, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin said that the meeting of the UN Security Council on Syria was canceled due to the U.S. refusal to disclose details of earlier agreements on the situation in the region.
