NGOs welcome unprecedented step towards increased aid in Syria

On 14 July the Global Centre and 33 other organizations from around the world in a joint statement welcomed the UN Security Council's unanimous adoption of Resolution 2165, which authorizes the UN to deliver cross-border humanitarian aid through Jordan, Turkey and Iraq into Syria without the consent of the Syrian government. The statement reminded the UNSC of its responsibility for "ensuring that its words are translated into meaningful action," calling for the resolution's immediate implementation.
