UNICEF: Syria agrees to grant more access for aid supplies

Published: 03.14.14, 17:58 / Israel News

Syria's government has promised greater access for aid groups supporting millions of Syrians, but faster progress is needed to tackle a dire humanitarian crisis, the head of the United Nations children's agency said on Friday.

 

UNICEF executive director Anthony Lake, speaking at a refugee camp for Syrians in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, said he was encouraged by "business-like" talks he held this week with Syrian officials in Damascus and Homs. "They said yes, they would be offering more access, allowing us to bring in more different kinds of supplies," Lake said. (Reuters)
