On Friday, the UNSC consultations on Syria were canceled at the request of the United States and Russia. Russian envoy Vitaly Churkin said the meeting was cancelled because the United States was not ready to share the documents detailing the agreement with the UNSC members. He also cast doubt on the approval of the resolution.
A nationwide ceasefire in Syria came into force on September 12 after Russia and the United brokered a new peace deal to address the five-year conflict in Syria. Humanitarian access, along with seven days of reduced violence, are some of the conditions of the US-Russia deal.
