MOSCOW, February 12, 0:48 /ITAR-TASS/. Terrorist acts of recalcitrant opposition in Syria should be condemned by all members of the international community and the participants in the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva, the Russian Foreign Ministry declared on Tuesday.
Moscow received with satisfaction the report that the cease-fire in the old part of the Syrian city of Homs had been extended for another three days. “Thanks to the cease-fire over 800 people, mostly women, children and the aged, have been able to leave the area. More food parcels have been delivered for residents of the blocked quarters,” the ministry’s commentary says.
The ministry has the information that the talks among representatives of the Syrian authorities, Palestinian structures and the armed opposition held in the Palestinian refugee camp Yarmouk near Damascus resulted in arrangement that foreign militants will leave the camp within 24 hours. “This refers, above all, to Jabhat al-Nusra group,” the ministry noted.
“Remedying the plight of residents of populated localities shows the opportunity for effective humanitarian operations given interest of all the parties involved and their readiness for the quest of a compromise,” the ministry states. “Against this background, militants from the ‘terrorist internationale’ in Syria make desperate efforts to disrupt the process of conciliation and provoke aggravation of violence, committing bloody crimes,” the ministry notes.
Moscow declares that “the actions of recalcitrant opposition that stages terrorist acts and commits other crimes against civilian population in Syria must be condemned by all members of the international community and by the participants in the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva.
