Canada decries Russian-Chinese veto of UN's humanitarian assistance to Syria

Canada's  Minister of Foreign Affairs, François-Philippe Champagne, and Canada's Minister of International Development, Karina Gould, have stated that Canada opposes China's and Russia's veto of the UN resolution to continue vital cross-border humanitarian assistance to Syria. Canada believes that this veto will prevent millions of Syrians currently living in regions suffering from ongoing violence and airstrikes from receiving the immediate assistance they require. 

Canada called on all involved parties to remove and reduce barriers to providing quick and safe humanitarian assistance to Syrian people in need of support.
