MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Chinese Ambassador to Russia Li Hui discussed the current situation and the future of ceasefire in the war-torn Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

"During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on the Middle Eastern significant issues, with a particular focus on the political, military and humanitarian aspects in Syria in the context of the Russia-US agreement, reached on September 9, to maintain the cessation of hostilities as well as to fight against terrorist groups and facilitate the humanitarian access," the ministry said in a statement published on its website.

The two diplomats also stressed the necessity to further maintain Russia-China dialogue and effective cooperation within the United Nations as well as in the context of other international platforms on the Middle Eastern and North African matters.

The ceasefire stipulated by the Russia-US agreement came into force on September 12. On Monday, the Syrian Army declared the end of the seven-day ceasefire period, blaming militants for numerous violations that made the cessation of hostilities unreasonable.
