WAM RIYADH,10th October, 2013 (WAM) — The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has called on the Syrian regime to arrange a cease-fire out of respect for the sanctity of Hajj, the month of pilgrimage, and to open border crossings to allow delivery of humanitarian aid and relief in all its forms for the millions of needy people trapped and displaced people both inside and outside of Syria.

Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council appealed to all parties of the international community of states and organisations to intensify their humanitarian relief and assistance to Syrian people both inside and outside the country, especially as the bad conditions in which they suffer will worsen with expected weather changes in the coming winter.
