(UN News Centre) – Discussions on how to assist civilians caught in the crossfire inside war-ravaged Aleppo continue to be difficult “because the Member States that are supposed to help us get access [are] poles apart on what is happening in Syria,” United Nations Senior Adviser Jan Egeland said today in Geneva. “We are not having a united humanitarian diplomacy on the parties and we see that in a diminishing access on the ground,” he told reporters after a meeting of the Humanitarian Access Task Force of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG).
