Millions of Syrians are at immediate risk of being cut off from humanitarian aid unless fighting subsides, senior UN envoy Jan Egeland warns.
"So many humanitarian health workers and relief workers are being bombed, killed, maimed at the moment that the whole lifeline to millions of people is now ... at stake," he tells reporters.
Global and regional powers that form the International Syria Support Group promised in a Geneva meeting on Thursday that they would use their influence on the Syrian government and armed rebels, Egeland says.
"We hope that it will be real pressure on the parties," he adds.
