Saturday's vote will be on a new draft text submitted by Germany and Belgium, which would provide for a single aid access point into Syria.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called in a tweet Saturday"on all delegations to no longer obstruct a compromise." UN authorization allows the international body to distribute aid to displaced Syrians without needing permission from Damascus. Bab al-Hawa, on the other hand, allows for aid to be funneled to nearly four million people in the insurgent Idlib region, which the Syrian regime does not control.Western member states reject Russia's arguments that authorization for cross-border aid violates Syrian sovereignty.

In January, Moscow succeeded in having the crossing points reduced from four to two and in limiting the authorization to six months instead of a year.
