The UN is to send a convoy of food and medical supplies to help the 250,000 people displaced by recent fighting in the Democratic Republic of Congo, BBC reported.
It will be the first aid in a week for those stranded in areas controlled by renegade Gen Laurent Nkunda's forces.
Visiting the region, the UK and French foreign ministers said urgent action was needed to ease the ongoing crisis.
David Miliband and Bernard Kouchner said both the implementation of peace deals and the delivery of aid were key.
Some 250,000 people have been forced from their homes in two months of conflict in eastern DR Congo, and aid agencies have been forced to suspend operations in many areas.
Gen Nkunda's forces last week routed the Congolese military in areas around Goma, the capital of the restive North Kivu province.
A fragile ceasefire is now in place, and Gen Nkunda has said he would guarantee "humanitarian corridors" for the convoy through rebel lines.
