MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. The observance of the truce regime in the Syrian city of Aleppo is very fragile due to the activity of terrorists, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
The presidential spokesman thus commented on the introduction of the ceasefire regime in Aleppo.
"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.
"At the same time, there are such complicated mixtures of terrorists and representatives of the opposition [in Aleppo] that, of course, the situation [with the truce regime observance] is potentially very fragile," Peskov said.
The regime of silence in Aleppo located 360 km (224 miles) from Damascus came into force from 01:00 a.m. local time on May 5.
As the command of the Syrian armed forces announced, fire must be fully stopped in Syria’s northern capital for 48 hours. Simultaneously, the truce regime was extended in Eastern Ghouta region near Damascus and in the north of Latakia province. Combat operations in these areas were halted on April 30 on the initiative of the Russian and the US sides after agreement with the Syrian authorities and the moderate opposition.
UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura has said that the ceasefire in Aleppo will contribute to the resumption of inter-Syrian peace talks in Geneva.
