"We are building on the fact that the al-Nusra Front is fighting Syria's armed forces near Aleppo. If someone has differing information, which is exact, with coordinates, then we once again request you to share it with us. Tell us where West-supported opposition forces that are observing the ceasefire are. If this is done, then of course, these groups will not be hit, as has been promised by Russia many times," Borodavkin told Sputnik.
Borodavkin also noted that the Syrian government army is carrying out combat operations against Daesh and al-Nusra Front jihadist groups in Syria in line with a UN resolution designating them as terrorist organizations.
"The Syrian armed forces, backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, strike those they consider terrorists and those considered terrorists by the UN Security Council in accordance with Resolution 2254. This resolution clearly states that the al-Nusra Front and Daeshe are terrorist groups," Borodavkin said.
Borodavkin stressed that the Syrian army is fighting only these two groups.
"If among Daesh or al-Nusra militants there are representatives of the groups that are part of the High Negotiations Committee [opposition delegation], then we can only regret that. We recommend these groups to immediately stop all contact and cooperation with al-Nusra and Daesh, announce it publicly in accordance with existing procedure, and join the cessation of hostilities," he reiterated.
