According to information reported today by the RBC.ru, Syrian authorities have not let the Deputy UN Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos into Syria.
Amos has reported she was "deeply disappointed" by this decision, "despite repeated requests to meet with government officials at the highest level to discuss the humanitarian situation in the country and help those in need", according to the RBC.ru.
"Given the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation, and an increasing demand for food, water and medical care, the provision of access to humanitarian assistance to those in need is a question of great importance", Amos said, as reported by the edition.
Recall, as reported by the Rosbalt.ru, yesterday, the UN Council for Human Rights intends to appeal to the Syrian authorities to stop the severe measures against civilians and create conditions for delivery of humanitarian aid to Homs and other parts of Syria.
In the draft resolution of the Council they would note that the systematic violation of human rights and fundamental freedoms on the side of the Syrian government has led to a deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the country, the edition added.
