Syria – Russian proposal for “humanitarian corridors” in Aleppo (July 28, 2016)


The situation in Aleppo remains a cause for deep concern for France and the international community.

The city is under siege and its people are being bombed and deprived of food and humanitarian aid.

Under international humanitarian law, they must be able to receive emergency aid.

In this connection, the possibility of “humanitarian corridors,” which would mean asking Aleppo’s inhabitants to leave their city, is not a credible response to the situation.

Aleppo’s inhabitants must be able to remain securely at home and to receive all the assistance they need. That is the priority.
