GENEVA, March 13. /TASS/. The ceasefire regime in Syria should be termless, Russia's Ambassador to the UN and other international organizations in Geneva Alexei Borodavkin told TASS on Sunday.
He said, all statements from the opposing Supreme Commission for Negotiations about truce for two weeks are unacceptable.
"The ceasefire regime should remain until stable peace is established," the Russian diplomat said.
"We and all other responsible participants in the political process of the Syrian settlement consider it exactly this way - as the first step towards ceasefire and complete establishment of peace in Syria," he said.
Russia is calling on the Syrian parties to apply a balanced approach to the negotiations, Borodavkin told.
"We hope this time above all will be balanced and realistic approaches to the negotiations, and will begin a gradual process of implementing the UN SC resolution on Syria, which outlines the roadmap of gradual settlement of the Syrian crisis," the diplomat said.
Russia will assist the Syrian moderate opposition in consolidating, he added.
"We are trying to help the moderate Syrian oppositionists to get consolidated and to agree on basic provisions of their common political program," the diplomat said. "In the long run, it is their obligation to the Syrian people to follow strong and common positions.".
