Thank you, Mr. President.
I welcome this opportunity to brief the Security Council about the humanitarian situation in Syria.
My latest report is now before the Security Council. The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs will brief you in detail.
I will focus my remarks on the decisions soon to be taken by the Security Council.
For many of Syria’s people, the situation today is worse than at any time since the conflict began.
13.4 million people need humanitarian assistance.
