Milliyet - Turkey | Friday, January 24, 2014

Now it's about the people of Syria

The international Syria conference will move on Friday from Montreux to Geneva, where the real negotiations on the future of Syria are to begin. The top priority is to ensure humanitarian aid for the Syrian people, the conservative daily Milliyet urges: "The most important question is how the millions of hungry and thirsty Syrians lacking medical assistance can be helped. Humanitarian aid shipments aren't reaching those who need them in Syria, because the fighting is everywhere. Consequently the most urgent goal must be to secure a ceasefire. It seems as if this is also a top priority for UN special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi. If the parties in Geneva can reach an agreement on this point in the coming days, it would constitute the peace conference's first and most important success."
