MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that humanitarian aid would be delivered to Syria’s eastern Ghouta using a “humanitarian corridor” that Moscow had helped open.

Lavrov, speaking at a news conference with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian, said the corridor was designed to evacuate civilians and to let in aid.
