Key global players pledge further support to Aleppo

The global community is stepping up efforts to help Syrian civilians, who have suffered during the government's assault on Aleppo.

"Our priority right now is to give a chance to our UN colleagues who are there, but I would hope that there can be many of us on site to be able to help, to be with the people who are leaving," said UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan De Mistura.
"We will exert pressure on other global players who are present in Syria using all available diplomatic channels. The aim is clear: the immediate opening of humanitarian corridors to allow aid into Aleppo," said European Council President Donald Tusk.

"The UK is going to provide a further 20 million pounds of practical support for those who are most vulnerable," said British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"We're going to be trying every way we can to try to save lives and push this to where it needs to get to," said US Secretary of State John Kerry.
Russian President Vladimir Putin says Russia and Turkey are working to launch a new round of peace talks between the Syrian government and the opposition in order to broker a nationwide cease-fire.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country is prepared to welcome young and elderly Syrian civilians fleeing war-torn Aleppo. And French President Francois Hollande says he hopes an upcoming UN Security Council meeting can help usher in positive and concrete results.
