İlknur Şebnem Öztemel-TDO- 12.05.2017 U.N. humanitarian adviser for Syria, Jan Egeland, told reporters as "Russia and Turkey and Iran explained to us today and yesterday ... that they will work very openly, proactively, with United Nations and humanitarian partners to implement this agreement".
He added "We do have a million questions and concerns but I think we don't have the luxury that some have, of this distant cynicism, and saying it will fail. We need this to succeed ".
Also, U.N. Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said they coulduse this momentum for upcoming what he called "rather business-like, rather short" peace talks in Geneva from May 16-19. He said, otherwise there would be “ten more Aleppos’’.
The real goal of Astana talks was establishing an interim government. Attendees made progress in issues such as de-mining and prisoner releases but there are still some problems about land borders and distribution of aid.
Additionally, Egeland indicated that despite the number of people who were hard to reach with aid had fallen by 10 percent to 4.5 million, a further 625,000 were besieged and 80% of them were still loyal to Assad regime.
