Syrian refugee camp is in need of humanitarian aid and Russia can solve this problem, Special Advisor to the UN Special Envoy for Syria, Jan Egeland stated in his interview to journalists on November 9, RIA Novosti news agency reports.

The question of humanitarian aid to the Syrian camp al-Rukban is discussed in the framework of a trilateral problem-solving mechanism between Russia, UN, and Syria.

It had the first meetings, still hasn’t produced the concrete results that were needed, but it is our strong feeling that the Russian Federation wants us to get the access and wants to help us, so we are hopeful that this trilateral mechanism will yield results and that they can yield results starting now,”  stated the UN representative.

The deterioration of the humanitarian situation proved to be especial acute after a USA and allied force’s military group refused entry to UN and humanitarian organizations representatives to the camp on November 6. Camp al-Rukban is located in the area where the US Armed Forces are located. Presently, there are around 50 thousand refugees in this camp, humanitarian aid did not reach them since July 2017.
