    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States is determined to continue pressing the UN Security Council to help with humanitarian aid delivery to Syria, US President Barack Obama stated during a press conference on Friday.

    "We are going to keep pressing the Security Council to help improve delivery the humanitarian to those who are in such a desperate need," Obama said.

    Over recent months, Aleppo became a major battleground in Syria with the government troops seeking to liberate the city divided into the government-held western part and the militant-held eastern part.

    Earlier on Friday, Russian Defense Ministry's reconciliation center announced that Aleppo is now under full government control with the army operation to liberate its eastern districts from militants complete.

    According to the United Nations, at least 300,000 Syrians have died since the beginning of the conflict and millions have been displaced.
