Russia unveils Syria truce deal with US
Moscow, Sep 28 (IANS) Russia has made public a package of agreements with the United States on the Syrian settlement, the country’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
“We are publishing the text of all Russia-US deals on Syria and are calling on Washington to do the same, including making public the mandate of the Joint Implementation Centre on coordination of anti-terrorist air strikes in Syria,” Xinhua news agency quoted the Ministry as saying in a statement.
Moscow also urged Washington to fulfil its promise of separating the so-called moderate Syrian rebel forces from terrorist groups, saying that “flirting and conniving with terrorists would never lead to anything good”.
On September 10, Russia and the United States announced a landmark agreement on a nationwide cease-fire in Syria, which both sides hope would lead to their countries’ military cooperation to end more than five years of bloodshed there.
However, crossfire resumed in the first hours after the week-long truce deal expired on September 19.
