ST. PETERSBURG, June 16. /TASS/. Russia calls for a long-term ceasefire in Syria’s Aleppo, Russian presidential special envoy for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Thursday.
"We call for this," Bogdanov stressed, answering a question if the ceasefire declared for two days can become a long-term one.
Russia’s Defense Ministry announced late on Wednesday that a 48-hour regime of silence has been imposed in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, in order to stabilize the situation.
Moscow is calling for prompt resumption of talks between the Syrian government and Syrian opposition representatives in Geneva.
"Those who sought a political settlement should promptly resume the intra-Syrian dialog, too," he said.
