The United Nations officials said on Wednesday they were still awaiting "a green light" to move and bring aid assistance, while Assad regime said no aid to be allowed access without coordination with it.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said 20 truckloads were ready and were supposed to be delivered on Wednesday.

"But, unfortunately, because of all these arrangements for making sure the security and safety of the people - humanitarian workers, including drivers - have not been made yet ... they are now at the border of Syria," he said.

He also said it was "crucially important" that the necessary security arrangements be made so that the trucks can be allowed to cross the lines.

"A lot of people are dying from poverty and disease and because of lack of sanitary support," he said.
