MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. A reconciliation agreement was signed during the day with representatives of one more settlement in the Syrian province of Daraa, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russian defense ministry’s website on Sunday.
"The number of settlements joining the reconciliation process has reached 164," the center said.
Talks on joining the regime of cessation of hostilities were continued with field commanders of armed opposition groups in the provinces of Hama, Homs and Daraa.
The number illegal armed groups that declared their commitment to the ceasefire terms remains unchanged - 61, as follows from the bulletin.
"Six tons of humanitarian cargoes, primarily flour, food products and sweets for children, were delivered to low-income families in the cities of Akrad Ibrahim in the province of Hama and Leyhait in the province of Aleppo, the bulletin says.
A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.
The Russian reconciliation center aims to assist armed groups in Syria in concluding ceasefire agreements, maintain the truce regime, control its observance and organize the delivery of humanitarian cargoes to civilians.
