Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and Janez Lenarcic, Crisis Management Commissioner, agreed that authorising only one crossing, from the previously available points, will hinder the delivery of aid.

The obstructive approach of certain members of the UN Security Council is regrettable at a time when needs have never been greater and during the coronavirus pandemic, which is adding to what was already a desperate situation in Syria, according to their joint statement.
