KHMEIMIM /SYRIA/, February 28. /TASS/. The Russian Center for Reconciling the Warring Sides in Syria will start issuing a daily information bulletin with actual data on the situation in that Arab country, Center Head Lieutenant-General Sergei Kuralenko said on Sunday.
"The bulletin will publish information on the implementation of measures for the reconciliation of the warring sides, the provision of humanitarian aid to the population of Syria and also the results of control over the observance of the ceasefire regime," the general said.
"This information will be brought through established communications channels to the notice of the US Reconciliation Center in Amman and the working group in Geneva and will also be posted on the official website of the Russian Defense Ministry," he added.
Russian and US Presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama adopted a statement on February 22 on a ceasefire in Syria from February 27.
Both countries undertook to influence the Syrian political forces close to them to achieve truce in Syria. The truce regime does not apply to the groupings recognized by the United Nations as terrorist organizations, such as the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (both outlawed in Russia).
In the follow-up of the joint statement by the Russian and US leaders, a special Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Sides was set up at Russia’s Khmeimim airbase in Syria’s Latakia. Currently, 61 Russian officers are working at the Center.
The Center aims to assist armed groupings in Syria in concluding ceasefire agreements, maintain the truce regime, control its observance and organize the delivery of humanitarian cargoes to civilians.
