The closure of the aid corridor from Turkey into Syria's opposition-held areas would spell "catastrophe" for millions of people, a United Nations aid official warned.

The official, Mark Cutts, U.N. deputy regional humanitarian coordinator for the Syria crisis said; "This is one of the most vulnerable populations anywhere in the world.

"It is absolutely essential that we keep this lifeline going.

"We know things this year are even more politicized than in previous years. The tensions are very high with the war in Ukraine.

"A failure to renew this resolution will be a catastrophe. There is no alternative currently available that can replace the scale or scope of what the U.N. is currently doing."

The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said about 13.4 million people across Syria were in need of assistance last year, up from 11.1 million in 2020.
