Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 30
By Emil Ilgar – Trend:
Ceasefire in Syria is a major achievement, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted Dec. 30.
“Let's build on it by tackling the roots of extremist terror,” he said.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said Dec. 29 that agreements were achieved on a ceasefire in Syria and the readiness to start peace talks.
“Reports have just arrived that several hours ago there was a development that we all have for so long looked and worked for. Three documents have been signed. A ceasefire between the Syrian government and the armed opposition is one. A package of measures to control the ceasefire is another. And a declaration of readiness to enter peace talks on a settlement in Syria is the third,” Putin said at a meeting with Russian foreign and defense ministers.
