UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The U.N. Security Council is unanimously demanding immediate access everywhere in Syria to deliver humanitarian aid to millions of people in desperate need.
Russia and China, strong supporters of the Syrian government, joined the rest of the council Saturday in sending a strong message to President Bashar Assad's government that civilians caught in the three-year conflict must be helped.
The resolution doesn't threaten sanctions but it does express the council's intention to take "further steps" if the resolution isn't implemented.
