BERLIN, September 19. /TASS/. The ministerial meeting of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) in the Vienna format will be held on September 20 in New York, Germany’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Martin Schafer announced on Monday.
"The ceasefire agreement reached by the US and Russia nine days ago is expiring," he noted. "So it’s good that the Russian foreign minister and the US secretary of state have suggested that the ISSG have talks tomorrow in New York."
German Government Spokesman Steffen Seibert said in turn that Berlin "calls on all the parties to the conflict to adhere to the ceasefire agreement." "We regret the information on the Syrian regime’s unwillingness to maintain the ceasefire, while it could facilitate the humanitarian aid deliveries," Seibert noted. According to him, Damascus is restricting such deliveries. The spokesman also called upon Russia to exert pressure on Damascus so that the situation could change.
On September 9 in Geneva Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and the US Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to a five-document deal aimed at establishing a ceasefire in Syria and providing the groundwork for reviving the political process. These documents include agreements on separating the opposition from the terrorists, response procedures for ceasefire violations and also issues concerning humanitarian aid deliveries.
