UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — Western-backed opposition forces in Syria have not broken off ties to the al-Nusra Front terrorist group despite their promises to do so, Russia's Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin told the Security Council on Wednesday.

"We have been promised that the armed units of [the] so-called moderate opposition will break off all links with the al-Nusra, withdraw from territories it occupies and clearly state their readiness to take part in the peace settlement. This has not occurred so far," Churkin said.

"We call on all sides [in Syria] for constructive participation and dialogue and [to refrain] from threats or sabotage," Churkin told the UN Security Council.
