MOSCOW, August 30. /TASS/. Reconciliation agreements were signed during the day with representatives of 14 settlements in Syria, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russian defense ministry’s website on Tuesday.
It said ten reconciliation agreements were signed in Homs province and four in Latakia. According to the center, "the number of settlements joining the reconciliation process has reached 504".
Talks on joining the regime of cessation of hostilities were continued with field commanders of armed opposition groups in the provinces of Homs, Latakia, Quneitra and Hama, it said. "The number of illegal armed groups that declared their commitment to the ceasefire terms remains unchanged - 69," the bulletin said.
Apart from that, one ton of humanitarian cargoes - sugar, flour, tinned meat and fish - were delivered to low-income families in the settlement of Marmarita in Homs province.
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.
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.
