GENEVA (Sputnik), Svetlana Alexandrova — The US representative to the UN Human Rights Council, Keith Harper, praised the ongoing ceasefire in Syria, in a comment to Sputnik on Friday.
"It is a difficult process but we are happy where it is now. It is always going to be challenging," Harper said at a side event of the UN Human Rights Council's 31st session in Geneva.
The US ambassador attended a panel discussion by Nobel Peace Prize recipients on the subject of human rights in the war-torn country.
Last month, Russia and the United States brokered a truce between the Syrian government and key opposition forces in Syria.
