    Turkey plans to send a humanitarian convoy to the Syrian city of Aleppo later on Monday when a Russian-US ceasefire agreement takes effect, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) – On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry announced a new plan on Syria, which stipulates a ceasefire starting from September 12.

    "Today after sunset under the auspices of the UN or our Red Crescent Society, trucks with food, toys and clothing will be sent through coordinated corridors mainly to Aleppo," Erdogan told reporters.

    He added humanitarian aid was also planned to reach the northern Syrian towns of Jarablus and al-Rai.
