Kremlin: Truce in Aleppo ‘very fragile’

Moscow, SANA- Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov described on Thursday the truce in Aleppo city as ‘very fragile’.

“You always want to hope for the better: this is what is desired by the Russian side and, probably, by our American colleagues,” the Kremlin spokesman said in a press statement.

“At the same time, there are such complicated mixtures of terrorist groups in Aleppo that, of course, the situation [with the truce observance] `is potentially very fragile,” Peskov said.

In turn, Chairman of the Russian State Duma’s defense committee Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov considered that the agreement on the truce proves the fruitful cooperation between Russia and US about crisis settlement in Syria.

He added that dialogue is already under way between the Russian and US sides, explaining that the truce will be beneficial to all parties in order to reach peace in Syria.

On Wednesday, General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced that a truce will be applied in Aleppo for 48 hours as of 1 a.m. on Thursday May 5th, 2016.
