New Zealand, Egypt and Spain have tabled a joint resolution on the Syrian crisis with the UN Security Council, demanding a 10-day humanitarian ceasefire for the city of Aleppo. The resolution has been backed by the US, France and Britain with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault saying the UN should “put in place means to end the hostilities and to allow humanitarian aid to get through unhindered.” Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin said that the attempts to define a moderate opposition concept in Syria separate from terrorist groups have failed. It seems attempt to liberate Aleppo annoys the West. The West would seemingly rather have foreign backed militants intertwined with internationally labeled terrorist groups control the city than to have the country’s own army provide humanitarian corridors & aid for its own peoples. In this edition of the debate, we will discuss Aleppo and its latest developments.
