MOSCOW: Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday the U.N. resolution on humanitarian aid access in Syria could be agreed in "the coming days" if Security Council members do not seek to "politicize" the issue, Interfax reported.

Moscow initially opposed a Western-Arab draft resolution on aid to Syria but then proposed its own text, saying it was ready for negotiations.
