The opening of two additional border gates from Turkey is on the agenda of the UN. Last Minute WORLD, CURRENT headlines and events


The United Nations continues its efforts to heal the wounds inflicted by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. Representatives of UN organizations are evaluating various assistance plans based on various scenarios for the possible migration of more than five million people left homeless in Syria after the earthquake to border countries.

UN Assistant Secretary-General Martin Griffiths, who made contacts and conducted an investigation in the earthquake area, is expected to present a comprehensive report prepared by UN Secretary-General António Guterres in New York.

Diplomatic contacts continue in the lobby for the adoption by the Security Council of a decision to continue assistance to Syria through additional border gates that will be opened from Turkey after the earthquake.

WHO calls for $46 million in aid

The World Health Organization (WHO), which is part of the UN, has asked for $46 million in aid for Turkey and Syria. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the amount will increase as the extent of the disaster becomes clear.

Tedros said Syrian authorities appear to be open to allowing more border crossings to bring humanitarian aid to the northwest. Noting that they also appreciate the Syrian government’s recent overall endorsement of cross-border convoys and measures to increase cross-border access by the Syrian government, he said, “We hope this continues.”

The director of the World Health Organization said he met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and that Assad is open to assessing additional cross-border hotspots for this emergency.

Tedros said the WHO had distributed 110 tons of medical supplies to Syria so far and that the number of specialized frontline medical teams would be increased.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Office for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that more than 4,300 people had died and 7,600 were injured in Syria.

The UN Security Council is discussing the earthquake that has affected Turkey and Syria in a meeting that began at 3:00 pm local time.

Reuters news agency, citing diplomatic sources, said Griffiths, who had just returned from the region, said a compromise had been reached in a closed meeting with Assad on two new border gates to be opened from Turkey.
