(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) British Foreign Secretary William Hague on Friday called on the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to provide immediate humanitarian access to 9.3 million Syrians in need



"It is unacceptable that the Syrian regime has failed to make the necessary progress demanded in UNSCR 2139, Hague said as the UN makes its monthly report on progress of the UN Security Council Resolution 2139 on humanitarian access in Syria



"The regime has intensified its indiscriminate use of aerial bombardments, including using barrel bombs, continued to use siege tactics to starve 175,000 of its own people and denied humanitarian agencies sustained periods of access to millions of Syrians in desperate need," Secretary Hague said, citing UN reports



"I call on Assad to implement immediately the measures demanded by the UN and call on the regime'sinternational backers to press the need for urgent action




"All groups must comply with UNSCR 2139 and I also condemn the actions of extremist groups which have blocked humanitarian access," he went on. "In contrast, I welcome the steps taken by the National Coalition and other moderate opposition groups to implement UNSCR 2139, as recognised by the UN report, including facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid in parts of Aleppo and Idlib. "However as the UN report demonstrates clearly - the primary responsibility for action remains with the regime whose behaviour has only deteriorated even further since the adoption of UNSCR 2139



"The unanimous adoption of UNSCR 2139 reflects the strong will of the international community to address the desperate humanitarian situation in Syria. The UK will press for substantive progress before the next report in April," he added
