Consensual basis for trilateral ceasefire monitoring mechanism in Syria


Russia, Turkey and Iran as well as the Syrian government and opposition delegations have agreed upon the details for a joint ceasefire monitoring group, thereby creating a consensual basis for a trilateral monitoring mechanism in Syria, a Kremlin source told TASS.

The universal approval of the statement concerning the Joint Task Force for the ceasefire regime monitoring drafted by Russia, Turkey and Iran has become the major result of the Astana meeting,” the source said, adding that it created “a solid consensual basis” for the work of the monitoring mechanism.

The source added that the joint monitoring group would be also tasked with separating the armed opposition from such terrorist groups as Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al-Nusra Front as well as with building trust between the sides of the Syrian conflict and fostering intra-Syrian dialog.
