UN: Humanitarian Access to Syrians Still Challenging

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday said that humanitarian access to Syrians is still “extremely challenging”, blaming both the government and the opposition for the problem.

“One month after the passing of Security Council resolution 2139, humanitarian access in Syria remains extremely challenging for humanitarian organizations,” Ban said in a report to the Security Council.

“Delivering lifesaving items, in particular medicines, remains difficult. And the assistance reaching people continues to fall far short of what is required to cover even their basic needs,” he said.
