Syria looks forward to the implementation of the agreements reached by Moscow and Washington to resolve the situation in the country while fully supporting Russia’s stance on the issue, Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad has said as quoted by Tass news agency.
"Damascus fully supports Moscow in the truce issue in Syria," the diplomat said. "We believe that the Russian-US agreements on the ceasefire will be implemented."
Russia and the United States on Monday adopted a joint statement on truce in Syria as of February 27 midnight Damascus time. The parties to the conflict - the Syrian government and the Syrian opposition groups - have already given their preliminary consent to ceasefire.
Russia’s air base Hmeimim in Syria has opened a coordination center. All opposition groups are free to use its hotline number to declare they have decided to stop fighting.
The Russian-US agreement is not applicable to the Daesh, Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist organizations blacklisted by the UN Security Council.
