MOSCOW, June 7. /TASS/. Moscow and Cairo believe that a sustainable ceasefire in Syria will make it possible to solve the issues of delivering humanitarian aid more effectively and facilitate the negotiation process between the government and opposition. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, this was stated during a telephone conversation between Russian and Egyptian Foreign Ministers Sergey Lavrov and Sameh Shoukry on Tuesday.

"The ministers made a joint appeal to observe the ceasefire in Syria at least during the period of Ramadan," the ministry said. "Moscow and Cairo believe that a sustainable ceasefire will make it possible to solve the issues of delivering humanitarian aid more effectively and facilitate the negotiation process between the government and opposition, which should be inclusive."

The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that the ceasefire "does not affect military operations against ISIL (former name of the Islamic State terrorist group outlawed in Russia - TASS) and Jabhat al-Nusra (terrorist group outlawed in Russia - TASS) and extremists teaming up with them the fight against whom should be uncompromising."

The ministers also discussed the state of affairs in the Middle East settlement "supporting the statement of Egyptian President (Abdel Fattah) el-Sisi on the need for negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis."
