BERLIN, February 12. /TASS/. Russia and Turkey need to be guided by the agreements reached on Syria in Munich last week in their military and political steps, German’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in Berlin on Tuesday.
"I expect that … Moscow and Ankara will be oriented on the Munich agreements in all their military and political actions and a significant decrease in military activity will happen until a final deal on ceasefire is reached," Steinmeier said.
Germany’s top diplomat stressed that "there is no alternative to the Munich agreements". The five-year civil war in Syria has reached a new grievous peak, he said speaking about the deadly attacks on Syrian hospitals and schools on Monday.
He also voiced concerns that the efforts on improving access for humanitarian aid and preparations for halting combat actions between the government forces and the opposition could be "put into question."
At the meeting in Germany’s Munich last Thursday, the participants of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), consisting of around 20 countries, including Russia and the United States, agreed to ensure ceasefire in Syria within a week.
A working group co-chaired by Russia and the US will be set up to this aim that will develop "modalities" of a ceasefire.
