UNITED NATIONS, February 24. /TASS/. Russia and the US have drafted two blueprints of a UN Security Council resolution in support of the agreement on ceasefire in Syria, reached earlier this week, a source at the UN headquarters told TASS.
In the coming days, a united resolution will be drafted on the basis of these blueprints.
"There are two texts, the American and the Russian, and the task now is to converge them into one," the source said, calling coordination of the future resolution a tedious process, especially considering the fact the case in hand was Syria.
Another source told TASS Russia and the US were holding discussions of the document in a bilateral format and no versions of the text had been circulated among other members of the Security Council.
On Monday night, Russia and the US came up with a joint statement saying the ceasefire would take effect in Syria at 00:00 hours Damascus time on February 27, or 22:00 hours GMT on February 26.
The statement said the terms of the ceasefire would cover all the parties to the conflict except Daesh (the Islamic State) and Jabhat al-Nusra, as well as other organizations, which the Security Council had listed as terrorist ones.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon hailed the agreement, with his special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura saying he was ready to support implementation of the accords either rights on the spot in Damascus or from Geneva.
