UN Security Council Rejects Russia’s Syria Aid Plan

NEW YORK – Members of the UN Security Council overwhelmingly rejected Russia’s draft resolution on humanitarian aid crossing borders to Syrian rebel fortresses, DW reported Thursday.
Russia wanted to reduce the number of border crossings to bring aid to Syria, devastated by the war. Her proposal only got four votes. Germany’s Foreign Minister Maas criticized Russia for worsening the humanitarian crisis.
Russia wanted to reduce the number of crossings between Turkey and northwestern Syria from two to one.
It was a counterproposal to an earlier draft German-Belgian resolution, vetoed by Russia and China on Tuesday.
The Russian revolution would have required a minimum of nine votes in the 15-member council for approval, but Moscow received the support of China, Vietnam and South Africa.
Seven countries, including Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States, voted against the proposal.
Currently, UN aid deliveries can cross from Turkey to the mainly rebel-controlled north-west in Bab al-Salam, north of Aleppo and Bab al-Hawa, in Idlib province.
The Syrian government does not control these border crossings. Since 2014, the passages have allowed the UN to provide vital relief to millions of Syrians living in these areas.
But the mandate for UN cross-border aid deliveries expires on Friday.
The German-Belgian draft resolution would have seen both crossing points remain open for a year.
But Russia, the main sponsor of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, wanted to authorize cross-border deliveries through the Bab al-Hawa crossing for six months.
Germany and Belgium criticize Russia.
“Millions of people are counting on the Security Council to allow as much humanitarian access as possible … [and] will continue to work towards this end,” Germany and Belgium said in a statement after the vote.
The German foreign minister criticized Russia for the worsening humanitarian situation in Syria, saying that support for a blockade mentality was “playing with people’s lives”, in the German national newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.
The UN council has until Friday to agree on a successor agreement to the current resolution.
