MOSCOW (Sputnik) – It comes a day after the Syrian government had approved the Russian-US agreement on Syria.
“The allies of Syria promise to fully abide by whatever the Syrian high command and the government decides with regard to the ceasefire. We fully support the ceasefire,” an unnamed Hezbollah field commander for Syria operations said as quoted by Lebanon-based Al Mayadeen broadcaster.
On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry announced a new plan aimed at reducing violence in Syria, which includes a new nationwide ceasefire starting on September 12. The agreement also stipulates distinguishing moderate opposition groups from terrorist groups, which is something Russia has been insisting on as being key to the fight against terrorism.
