US calls on Russia to pressure Syrian President Assad to allow citizens to flee in Ghouta


United States has urged Russia to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime to respect attempts to allow residents out of the rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta. 

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said the Assad regime continues attacking its citizens, especially in East Ghouta. 

He said US does not seek a conflict with the Syrian regime, but call on Russia to restrain the Assad regime, de-conflict counterterrorism operations with the coalition, and de-escalate the remaining battlefields of the Syrian civil war.

Despite the limited humanitarian pause, the UN has insisted that all sides must implement the 30-day truce demanded on Saturday, and said some 40 trucks loaded with aid were waiting for the violence to stop.
