The United Nations will aid Syria if the warring parties stop clashing but still aid workers will assess the safety of each delivery, a U.N. spokesman has told foreign media.

"We are now standing by, our warehouses are full of aid supplies, aid agencies are alerted, and are stocking all the goods in the warehouses waiting for the signal," the spokesman said.

Over 250,000 were killed in Syrian war, leaving 4.5 million more out of reach of aid workers, U.N. said.
