Remarks at a UN Security Council Briefing on the Humanitarian Situation in Syria

“Mr. President, the United States calls on all Council members, as well as our regional partners, to ensure that the UN has the operational capacity to implement cross-border aid deliveries throughout all agreed border crossings in accordance with resolution 2449.  No one should politicize or try to dictate UN operations for cross-border aid delivery in Syria.  Not the Assad Regime.  Not the Russian Federation.  No one.”

– Ambassador Jonathan Cohen
