PARIS, June 2. /TASS/. Moscow calls for a durable truce on the entire Syrian territory, the duration of which will not confine to the Moslem holy month of Ramadan something that the Syrian opposition's High Negotiations Committee proposed on Wednesday, a senior Russian diplomat told TASS.
"We're saying it's important to impose peace once and for all and to create more suitable conditions for a resumption and conduct of negotiations and for tapping a political solution," said the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, who is also the Russian President's special envoy to the Middle East and Africa, Mikhail Bogdanov.
"More than that, we speak in favor of starting earlier than Ramadan and never stopping (the truce)," Bogdanov said.
He recalled that decisions to stop combat operations in Syria had been taken a long time before. In some Syrian governorates they took effect in February on the basis of top-level agreements between Russia and the U.S.
"These agreements were formalized later in the Russian-American documents," Bogdanov said. "Also, they laid the groundwork for decisions of the Syria International Support Group and were eventually confirmed by the UN Security Council’s Resolution 2268, which is to be fulfilled."
On Wednesday, the High Negotiations Committee of the Syrian opposition addressed the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, with a letter wherein it asked him to assist in the establishing of ceasefire on entire Syrian territory during the holy month of Ramadan.
