UNITED NATIONS, March 22. /TASS/. The United Nations calls on parties to the conflict in Syria and also Russia and the United States to work together to support the ceasefire, UN spokesman Farhan Haq said.
"So we want to encourage everyone to work together, whether they are the parties on the ground, the guarantors or anyone else, to make sure that the cessation of the hostilities will continue and will last as long as we could possibly keep it going," Haq said.
The spokesman commented on Monday’s statement of the head of the Main Operations Directorate of Russia's General Staff, Sergei Rudskoi, that Russia is ready to unilaterally use military force starting March 22 against the armed groups systematically violating Syria’s ceasefire, if it gets no US response to its proposals on controlling the ceasefire regime.
He said that Russia had sent the corresponding proposals on February 25. The Russian-US consultations on March 18 in Jordan’s capital Amman showed that Washington was not prepared to discuss in detail Moscow’s proposals, he said. The US Department of State said that the statements of the Russian side contradict the agreements on ceasefire in Syria reached by Russia and the US in February. Spokesman John Kirby refused to speak about the proposals of the US side.
