Russia agreed to a 48-hour humanitarian cease-fire in the Syrian city of Aleppo, which would allow to deliver aid to the local population, according to Reuters.
“We have ... agreement now from the Russian Federation for the 48-hour pause, we're waiting (for) it from the other actors on the ground," said the coordinator of the U.N. humanitarian task force Jan Egeland at a press briefing in Geneva.
According to him, such approval took much longer than expected.
The U.N. Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said:
"... we are ready, trucks are ready and they can leave any time we get that message."
