UN: Aid airdrops last resort for Syria's besieged: Al Jazeera English

Published on 3 Jun 2016
Stephen O'Brien, the United Nations under-secretary for Humanitarian Affairs, talks to Al Jazeera from New York, discussing the efforts to deliver aid to besieged areas in Syria.

O'Brien says the UN will make a formal request to Syria's government, asking for permission to drop aid to besieged cities and villages.

He also said that out of 34 requests for June to deliver aid to besieged and hard-to-reach areas by land convoys, the Syrian government had turned down five.
