Damascus: Syria`s government on Tuesday warned that all aid going to the divided city of Aleppo, particularly assistance sent by Turkey, must be coordinated with Damascus and the United Nations.

"The Syrian Arab Republic announces its rejection of the entry of humanitarian aid to Aleppo, particularly from the Turkish regime, without coordination with the Syrian government and the United Nations," state television quoted the foreign ministry as saying.

The statement came after media reports that an aid convoy was heading from Turkey to Aleppo city on Tuesday, hours after a fragile truce brokered by Russia and the United States began.
