GENEVA - The Syrian government is poisoning the atmosphere of peace negotiations with the opposition by denying delivery of vital aid supplies to civilians including in the besieged Old City of Homs, a US official said on Tuesday.

He called for the government of President Bashar Assad to approve immediately the full list of proposed convoy movements requested by the United Nations to the Old City of Homs, Mouadamiyah, Douma, Yarmouk, Mleiha, and Barzeh.

"If anything, the regime is further harming the negotiating environment through its continued denial of food, water and medical aid to the Syrian people," he said.
