Syria's Assad urges greater 'cooperation' on aid

AFP , Saturday 3 May 2014

President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday urged government bodies tasked with providing relief in war-torn Syria to increase "cooperation" with international and local organisations, state television reported.

His statement came after UN chief Ban Ki-moon issued a report that access for foreign aid to reach millions of Syrians desperately in need has not improved, violating a Security Council resolution.
