US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said adopting a resolution to boost humanitarian aid access in Syria "is the easy part" and called for "no more broken promises, delays or false concessions".
She wrote on Twitter:
After 3 yrs & 130K+ Syrians killed, w/ 6.8M needing aid; after barrel bombs, torture, starvation & arbitrary detentions, UNSC finally spoke.
Today’s unanimous #UNSC importantly demands that barrel bombing & forced starvation end & commits to acting in the face of non-compliance.
Adopting this resolution is the easy part. Now must remain focused on implementation. No more broken promises, delays or false concessions.
