Millions of people depend on the humanitarian aid currently funneled from a single border crossing in Turkey into northwest Syria, an arrangement authorized by the UN Security Council. Officials have warned of a humanitarian catastrophe if the mandate is not renewed.

Speaking alongside Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Turkish resort of Antalya, Cavusoglu said the mandate, which expires July 10, should be extended. Ankara would continue to work with Moscow on a political solution to Syria’s crisis and the maintenance of an existing ceasefire in the north, he added.
