MOSCOW, July 6. /TASS/. Reconciliation agreements were signed during the day with representatives of four more settlements in the Syrian provinces of Daraa, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russian defense ministry’s website on Tuesday.
"The number of settlements joining the reconciliation process has reached 177," the center said.
Talks on joining the regime of cessation of hostilities were continued with field commanders of armed opposition groups in the provinces of Damascus, Homs and Daraa, as follows from the bulletin. The number illegal armed groups that declared their commitment to the ceasefire terms remains unchanged - 61.
Apart from that, the Russian military continue deliveries of humanitarian aid to Syria’s population. "Five tone of humanitarian cargoes, primarily flour, rice, canned meat and fish, were delivered to low-income families in the settlements of Gujarat in the province of Latakia and Maaloula in the province of Damascus," the bulletin says.
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.
The Russian reconciliation center aims to assist armed groups in Syria in concluding ceasefire agreements, maintain the truce regime, control its observance and organize the delivery of humanitarian cargoes to civilians.
