NEW YORK, September 20. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is taking part in the ministerial level conference of the International Syria Support Group. According to the US delegation’s spokesman, 25 countries are taking part.
The foreign ministers have gathered at the luxury hotel Lotte New York Palace, being guarded by one hundred police.
The observance of truce in Syria was declared as the main theme of the discussion.
Earlier in Geneva Russian and US foreign ministers agreed a package of documents expected to establish real ceasefire. The truce took effect on September 12 but the Russian Defense Ministry has repeatedly pointed to its systematic violations by the opposition.
