The council decided on Monday in New York unanimously by resolution. Numerous members of the Council had spoken out in advance in favor of extending the mechanism by twelve months, but Russia then prevailed again with its demand for an extension of initially only six months.

Aid agencies had previously warned the humanitarian crisis in Syria would worsen if the previous resolution had expired Tuesday and not been renewed. The mechanism ensures that United Nations aid supplies are also brought to Syrian regions that are not controlled by the government via Turkey. Support has been extended several times in the past.
