MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. A reconciliation agreement has been inked with a settlement in the Syrian region of Latakia in the past 24 hours, the Russian Center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its daily news bulletin posted on the Russian Defense Ministry’s official website on Wednesday.
"The number of populated localities that joined the reconciliation process has increased to 1,033," the bulletin says. "Talks on joining the cessation of hostilities are ongoing with the field commanders of illegal armed units in the Damascus region and with groups of armed opposition in the regions of Homs, Hama, Aleppo and Quneitra."
"The number of armed groups that pledged their commitment to accepting and fulfilling the conditions of the cessation of hostilities has increased to 94," the document says.
Humanitarian aid is still coming to Syrian people, the Russian center said. Over the past 24 hours, four humanitarian operations have been carried out in the country’s regions. In the settlement of Raus Flisko in the Latakia region, local civilians received about one tonne of aid. In the As-Suwayda region, another one tonne of aid was distributed among residents of Kriya. In Aleppo’s district of Sheikh Maqsood, people were provided with 2.5 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes and residents of the Al-Nayrab district received about one tonne.
"Special centers keep operating in the city of Aleppo, providing hot meals and daily necessities to civilians who flee the districts controlled by illegal armed groups," the bulletin 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.
