U.N. envoy wins Syria government green light for aid convoys: U.N.
By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - The Syrian government has approved access to seven besieged areas and U.N. convoys are expected to set off in days, the United Nations said on Tuesday after crisis talks in Damascus. U.N. Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura, who won the green light at talks with Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem, said the world body would test the government commitment to allow access on Wednesday but gave no details. De Mistura said they had discussed the issue of humanitarian access to areas besieged by all sides in the five-year war.
