MOSCOW, July 1. /TASS/. Reconciliation agreements were signed during the day with representatives of two more settlements in the Syrian provinces of Homs and Aleppo, 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 Friday.

"The number of settlements joining the reconciliation process has reached 172," 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 Aleppo, Daraa, and al-Quneitra, as follows from the bulletin. The number illegal armed groups that declared their commitment to the ceasefire terms remains unchanged - 61.

Two tons of humanitarian cargoes, primarily flour and food products, were delivered to low-income families in the settlement of Umm al-Saj al-Shamali in the province of Homs, the center said.

A total of 18 tons of United Nations humanitarian cargoes, primarily food products and cereals, were delivered by a Russian Abakan Air plane to the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor besieged by Islamic State terrorists, 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.
