MOSCOW, Jun 27. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will on Monday receive a delegation of the Syrian opposition movement Syria’s Tomorrow led by Ahmad Jarba in Moscow.
The oppositionists said they plan to discuss implementation of the Syria Support Group decisions, including cessation of hostilities, ensuring humanitarian access to all besieged regions and "promotion of the political transition process."
Moscow has stated that there’s no progress in the political process. The previous round of Geneva consultations ended in late April.
The issue of convening a new meeting of representatives of Damascus and the opposition is skidding, as the so-called High Negotiations Committee, finding support with a number of external players, keeps setting preliminary conditions.
The ceasefire regime took effect in Syria on February 27. Shortly before, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution supporting a cessation of hostilities. The document drafted by Russia and the United States was backed by all 15 Security Council member states.
The ceasefire regime does not cover the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations as well as other groups ruled terrorist by the Security Council.
