MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) note Russia’s efforts in settling the situation in Syria and supporting negotiations, UAE’s Federal National Council Speaker Amal Al Qubaisi said on Friday at the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"The leaders of our countries have exceptional, good relations," Al Qubaisi said. "I hope that inter-parliamentary cooperation will be just as strong as inter-governmental," she added. "We are now close to developing a document on mutual understanding, on friendly relations between the parliaments," she noted.

"I will particular note Russia’s efforts in settling the situation in Syria, in supporting negotiations," Al Qubaisi said. "I will note Russian-US document on cessation of hostilities in Syria," she concluded.

A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.

An hour before the ceasefire came into force, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution in support cessation of hostilities in Syria. The document was initiated by Russia and the United States and won support from all the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council.

Russia’s Aerospace Forces started delivering pinpoint strikes in Syria at facilities of Islamic State and Jebhat al-Nusra on September 30, 2015, on a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad. On March 14, 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to start, from March 15, withdrawing the main part of the Russian Aerospace Forces’ group from Syria. Putin said the tasks set before the military "have been fulfilled on the whole." Two Russian military facilities - at the Khmeimim aerodrome and in Tartus - are still operational in Syria. The Russian military continue to take an active part in the fight against terrorist groups. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Nikolay Pankov said strikes on terrorists will continue to be delivered.
