France says Aleppo corridors not a credible response

France said on Friday that a Russian plan for humanitarian corridors to allow residents of Aleppo to flee the besieged Syrian city were not a "credible response".

Russia and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government declared a "humanitarian operation" in the besieged rebel-held sector of Aleppo on Thursday, opening "safe corridors" so people can flee Syria's most important opposition stronghold.

"In this context, the idea of 'humanitarian corridors' consisting of asking Aleppo's residents to leave the city does not offer a credible response to the situation," the ministry said in a statement.
