NEW YORK (Sputnik) — Ayrault added that he would reaffirm his initiative while speaking at the UN Security Council meeting on September 21. 

"I proposed to establish a mechanism to monitor implementation of the [ceasefire] deal so that Russia and the United States are not left alone [in monitoring peace in Syria]," Ayrault told reporters after the meeting of the International Syrian Support Group in New York.

Despite the US-Russia deal reached on September 9, fragile nationwide ceasefire in Syria is undermined by numerous outbreaks of hostilities.

On Monday, the Syrian army declared the end of ceasefire regime blaming militants for numerous violations that made the cessation of hostilities unreasonable.
