Official representative of Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on her Facebook on the outcome of the negotiations of the International support group in Syria.
"Well, now it begins. Yesterday till 2 am not the last people of this world have been working on Syria's ceasefire. The statement clearly states: Damascus and the opposition should stop the violence, the fight against terrorism will continue", — said the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Then, Maria Zakharova commented on the statement by the representative of the Higher Committee on negotiations of Riyadh.
"Today, after sleeping on it the representative of the Higher Committee on Negotiations of Riyadh said it would accept a truce in Syria only if the actions of the RuAF are terminated, otherwise it is unacceptable. In his words, "without stopping Russian airstrikes, a truce in Syria will not be stable".
I don't envy the state Department right now — yesterday they tried really hard," wrote Maria Zakharova on Facebook.
