MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Reconciliation agreements were signed over the last 24 hours with representatives of eight Syrian settlements, including five — in the province of Latakia, two — in the province of Homs, and one — in the province of Quneitra, the Russian Center for reconciliation of the warring parties said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russian Defense Ministry’s official website on Sunday.
"The number of settlements that joined the reconciliation process has reached 702. Talks on joining the regime of cessation of hostilities were continued with field commanders of armed opposition groups in the settlement of Muaddamiet al-Shih in the province of Damascus and commanders of armed opposition groups in the provinces of Homs, Aleppo and Quneitra," the center said.
The number of illegal armed groups that declared their commitment to the ceasefire terms remains unchanged — 69, as follows from the bulletin.
Apart from that, according to the Russian center, efforts are continued to improve the humanitarian situation. Thus, a total of 2.68 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes — sugar, flour, rice, tea, canned meat and fish — were delivered to the Orthodox community in the city of Latakia.
Hot meals and living essentials distribution outlets are still open for civilians leaving Aleppo’s neighborhoods controlled by illegal armed groups, the center said.
The Russian Defense Ministry declared the establishment of the reconciliation center on February 23. It is headquartered at the Hmeymim air base, Latakia province. The center was set up in line with agreements reached by Russia and the United States to facilitate the negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition and to organize humanitarian deliveries.
