GENEVA (Sputnik) — The United Nations is ready to send humanitarian convoy to Syrian Aleppo but there are many details which must be settled in advance as trans-border operations are complicated, Senior Adviser to UN Special Envoy for Syria Jan Egeland said Monday.

And we do have supplies ready. So we do ready. But there are many details that has to be sorted out because we will have to cross several front lines to do this operation. So it's a complicated operation, but we're willing and ready to do it and it's very urgent to get it going," Egeland told RIA Novosti in an interview.
