border crossing a lifeline for 3400000 people can stay open, at least for now. for another 12 months. trucks can continue to deliver food medicines and corona virus. vaccines from turkey into northwestern, syria. it's a region as war, almost daily islamist insurgence and government forces fight russian jets dropped bombs and people have to flee more than one and a half 1000000 people living crowded camps here. many have been displaced multiple times. they lack jobs and don't have prospects for the future. they're dependent on you and aid for survival. the now of the and i say everything we have to endure in this camp and sometimes a harder than living under a tree. if these deliveries didn't come, every month, we would die and the un security council reached the compromise after tough negotiations. russia was opposed,
11:03 am
but eventually agreed to the extension. the price for doing so is still unclear. united nations coordinator mark cuts was hoping for more. and we need to make sure that we just about food security. it's also about the health situation. it's about clean water, it's about shelter. what we really want to be doing in that area is we want to scale up this aid operation. a sigh of relief in the camps of lib. food emergency has been averted. but the last thing solution to the conflict, or even peace in northwestern syria, are still out of reach. i'm joined by my cuts. she's a un deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for syria. and he was in the report you just saw, of course, he joins us now from re huntley in turkey, close to that border crossing where aid is going into syria. welcome, more cuts. can you explain to viewers what the decision by the un security cancel
11:04 am
will mean to people on the ground in syria? well, it means that millions of people who are trapped warden are going to continue to receive the vital humanitarian aid that they depend on. i mean, we're talking about almost 2000000 displaced people who are living in tents and make shift show says in heretic condition, many of them do not have enough food or they don't have enough clean water and medical supplies and other support. they're entirely reliant on this 8 operation. it would have been a catastrophe if we were not able to kinda continue that. but the fact that the security council has renewed this resolution means that we can continue this aid. operational now, would have been a catastrophe. you say it strikes me mark that some at home might be scratching their heads wondering why it was so difficult for countries to agree to send

desperately needed food and humanitarian supplies, the civilians in a war torn region. well, it is a void. a lot of tensions, there's a lot of disagreement amongst members of the security council about, you know, the best way forward for syria and that is affected the humanitarian operation. it's great though that the security council really came together and there was a unanimous decision from all 15 members of the security council. this is exactly the kind of unity we need on critical humanitarian issues. i only hope that they show the same kind of resolve in addressing other humanitarian med emergencies around the world, new places like and me, and mar, and t grey and elsewhere. this is a good sign. ultimately, what people in syria want is a solution to the crisis. that's what they want more than anything else. and of
