USA: 'I will not speculate' on who bombed the Syrian aid convoy - Stoltenberg

SOT, Journalist (English): "You said Syria first. Where does NATO stand on the convoy attack?"
SOT, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO General Secretary (English): "The attack on the humanitarian convoy is morally totally unacceptable and it's a blatant violation of international law and it just underlines the importance of an effective ceasefire and unhindered access for aid workers and of course a lasting and sustainable political negotiated peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria."
SOT, Journalist (English): "Do you have an idea whose fault was it?"
SOT, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO General Secretary (English): "I will not speculate about that. It's important to get the facts and to find out how this could happen, but I will not speculate."
SOT, Journalist (English): "But Mr. Kerry called it 'facts' when he was addressing the Security Council."
SOT, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO General Secretary (English): "That's not for me to go into."
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that he would not speculate on whose fault was an attack on an aid convoy in Syria, which killed over 20 people and destroyed tonnes of humanitarian aid, stating that "it's important to get the facts," during an interview with RT following a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the 71st United Nations (UN) General Assembly session in New York, Wednesday.
When asked about NATO's stance on the attack against the humanitarian aid convoy, Stoltenberg stated: "the attack on the humanitarian convoy is morally totally unacceptable and it's a blatant violation of international law and it just underlines the importance of an effective ceasefire and unhindered access for aid workers and of course a lasting and sustainable political negotiated peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria."
After being asked his opinion on who was responsible for the convoy attack, Stoltenberg responded: "I will not speculate about that. It's important to get the facts and to find out how this could happen, but I will not speculate." After a journalist responded that US Secretary of State John Kerry said it was a "fact" that Russia or Syria were responsible, Stoltenberg replied that "that's not for me to go into."
On Tuesday, the UN halted all aid convoys to Syria following the bombing of a UN Arab Syrian Red Crescent aid convoy on Monday evening. At least 20 civilians and one humanitarian worker were killed in the attack en route to the Syrian city of Urum al-Kubra on Monday. A total of 18 trucks from the 31-vehicle convoy were destroyed in the attack.
Shortly after the attack, the US accused Russia of being "responsible" with the White House saying that either Russia or Syria attacked the convoy. Moscow strongly denies the claims.
