The European Union Saturday welcomed the unanimous adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2585 on Friday that will allow the UN to use the crossing point of Bab Al-Hawa from Turkey to Syria for one more year.

“It means a considerab­le relief for millions of Syrians who rely on the humanitari­an assistance delivered through this mechanism for their survival,” said EU High Representa­tive Josep Borrell and EU Commission­er for Crisis Management Janez Lenarcic in a joint statement today.

“The renewal of the UNSC Resolution on cross-border assistance is vital since there is no adequate alternativ­e to meet the growing humanitari­an needs in Syria,” it said.
