Russia has sent tonnes of humanitarian aid to Aleppo and helped open several humanitarian corridors for civilians to be able to flee the city and the fighting. Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ibrahim Rahimpur said:
Of course, we need to create conditions for normal life in Aleppo. Everyone in Aleppo and in Syria is tired of this situation. We’re ready to assist the Russian side in creating normal living conditions in Aleppo and Syria. We’re ready to cooperate with the Russian side. We’ll discuss this upcoming meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Baku. There are no limits when it comes to discussions between the two leaders.
