2:07 pm
the syrians themselves if they had a voice will tell you that a lot of those crossings is unacceptable and rest the health and welfare of millions of their fellow syrians are those people who gave the instructions to give instructions to cut off the aid of 500000 children. to look into the mirror to mark . this experience he cancelled was in a deadlock the majority of members argued the 2 crossing points were essential especially during the coronavirus pandemic but the veto powers russia and china argued that the north west of syria can be reached from within the country. we could have the rights to these results much earlier and while most important to cross into evil that is what russia was because it's just the very beginning. initially the u.n. aid mission had included access to syria from jordan and iraq those crossing points were cuts in january also due to russia and china. all day doubly correspondent.

2:10 pm
election vetoes reach for one border crossing to directly for 6th or one year instead of 6 months the 2nd reason germany and belgium fear that some of these supplies will not reach all the civilians in the clip which they are in need to. so what else will the decision mean for the people on the ground. this situation on the ground it so dramatic we can say according to opposition sources i'm talking about the syrian observatory for human rights told me this morning that one border crossing will not be sufficient not be enough to stop this to stop like 3000000 people in specially that the medical situation after the announcement of the 1st cabinet 19 case in the not just good logical.
