MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia is not backing out of an agreement reached with the United States on an expired week-long ceasefire in Syria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Thursday.

"We are not backing out of this agreement. On the contrary, we believe that the recent events underscore its super-urgency. Unfortunately, this agreement has many opponents, if not enemies," Ryabkov told reporters.

The September 9 truce reached by the Russian and US diplomats that went into force last week was subject to extensions and anti-terrorist cooperation if it succeeded. The truce was marred by an allegedly errant US airstrike on Syrian government troops and by a deadly attack on a humanitarian aid convoy near Aleppo.
