GENEVA, May 4. /TASS/. A Russian-US center to ensure a rapid response to violations of the ceasefire in Syria has been opened in Geneva, a senior Russian diplomat said on Wednesday.
"We expect the center’s effective work to help prevent ceasefire violations in Syria," Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Office and Other International Organizations in Geneva Alexey Borodavkin told TASS.
On May 3, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with Staffan de Mistura, the UN secretary general’s special envoy on Syria, that a joint Russian-American center for rapid response to violations of the regime of cessation of hostilities would be established in Geneva in the near future.
The minister said that the center will ensure daily information exchange and development of response measures.
