Lavrentiev reiterates Russia’s Rejections to Cross-Border Aid Mechanism

Russian President’s Special Envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev stressed that his country insists on not prolonging the so-called “cross-border aid delivery mechanism” in Syria, as this mechanism has exceeded its usefulness.

In a statement to Journalists on the sidelines of the 16th of Astana format talks on Syria, which has started its activities earlier on Wednesday in the Kazakh capital Nur-Sultan, Lavrentiev said that “we, of course,  insist on folding this mechanism and on not prolonging its work as it exceeded its usefulness.”

The Russian diplomat pointed out that Russia will discuss during the current meeting with the UN special envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen the continuation of the work of the Committee for Discussing the Constitution, indicating that all conditions to continue its work have been secured.
