UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — France will convene an emergency UN General Assembly special session if a consensus is not reached, Delattre said.
"We hope there will be a consensus in the Council on the lines I described to you to ask urgently to save the civilian population in Aleppo through a resolution that we have started drafting. If not, if there is no consensus, we will have to consider all the other options of the United Nations to move forward, including an emergency special session of the General Assembly," Delattre said on Friday.
On Friday, the UN Security Council will hold an emergency session on Syria to listen to the latest updates on the situation on the ground in Aleppo from Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O'Brien.
Earlier in the day, the Russian General Staff said that while militants in eastern Aleppo received food deliveries from abroad, civilians starved. Moreover, only the Syrian government and Russia currently provide Aleppo civilians with humanitarian aid, while no Western country or international organization does it.
