Lavrov reiterates calls to the US side to publish the items of the Russian-US agreement

Moscow, SANA – The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reiterated calls to the US side to publish the items of the Russian-US agreement about Syria and to inform the international community about the real situation in it.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Lavrov discussed with US State Secretary John Kerry during a phone call the implementation of the truce regime, noting that Lavrov pointed out to the efforts exerted by Moscow to coordinate the cooperation between the Syrian government and the United Nations to help the delivery of humanitarian aid to areas that need it.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, Lavrov urged the American side to work in this direction and to put pressure on the militants who are subject to the influence of the United States.

He called on Washington to not limit its efforts to just making accusations, but to ensure the full participation of American military personnel in the mechanism of monitoring the commitment of ceasefire in Syria and to respond to violations.

Lavrov stressed the need to separate the so-called moderate opposition from the terrorist groups that continue fighting or to force it to commit to the truce regime, noting in this regard that what is happening is the opposite, since the terrorists are hiding among the ranks of the militants who are considered by Washington to be involved in the truce.

Earlier today, Lavrov and French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault discussed details of the Russian-US agreement on Syria in a phone call, Russia Today website reported on Saturday.

According to the website, that Ayrault expressed his country’s support to Russia’s stance which calls for disclosing the details of the Russian-US agreement.
