The International Syria Support Group (ISSG) talks adopted a document consisting of three main parts devoted to humanitarian aid delivery, political process and cessation of hostilities, SANA reported.

A press conference to announce the outcomes of the ISSG meeting in Munich was held by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, his US counterpart John Kerry and the UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.

"Lavrov said the ISSG members committed to the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 2254, including humanitarian aid, the political process and a ceasefire, which excludes organizations designated as terrorist by the UN Security Council."

He welcomed what was agreed on regarding principles to reach a solution and ensure humanitarian access to all besieged areas without any exception.

He expressed concern about the terrorist groups’ hindering of humanitarian aid delivery by the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross to the terrorist-besieged Kefraya and al-Fouaa towns in Idlib, noting that the ISSG issued a denunciation statement addressing this issue.
