WASHINGTON, Sept 16 U.S. President Barack Obama
expressed deep concern that the Syrian government continues to
block the flow of humanitarian aid despite decreased violence in
the country following a truce arranged by the United States and
Russia, the White House said on Friday.
Obama, in a meeting with his national security aides, also
"emphasized that the United States will not proceed with the
next steps in the arrangement with Russia until we see seven
continuous days of reduced violence and sustained humanitarian
access," the White House said in a statement.
