Exclusive – Syria warns U.N.: aid delivery without consent is an attack

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Syria’s government warned the U.N. Security Council that delivering humanitarian aid across its borders into rebel-held areas without its consent would amount to an attack, suggesting it would have the right to retaliate against convoys.

As the veto-wielding members of the council – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia – negotiate a draft resolution to boost aid access, Syria circulated to the 15-member council a letter from dozens of Arab and Syrian lawyers.
