BEIRUT, September 10. /TASS/. The Syrian government said on Saturday it was issuing consent to the ceasefire envisioned by the agreement that the US and Russia reached in Geneva on Friday, SANA news agency said quoting a high-rank government source.
Damascus supports the US-Russian initiative that aims to attain political settlement of the crisis in Syria, the source said.
On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, who had 13-hour long talks in Geneva, coordinated a package of five documents called upon to enforce peace and order in Syria and to lay the groundwork for a resumption of the political process.
A 48-hour long pause is expected to take effect on Monday, September 12, when the Islamic world marks the biggest feast of the year, Eid al-Adha, also known as Kurban Bayram in the Turkic-speaking part of the global Muslim community.
It is not ruled out that the pause may be extended to cover a longer period of time.
