    Russia believes it is important to prevent the failure of Russia-US agreements on Syria, which could be used as a platform for coordination of international efforts in the fight against terrorism in the war-torn country, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In a speech dedicated to the celebration of the Islamic New Year on October 3, Lavrov said:

    "We are convinced that the strict implementation [of these agreements] could help establish efficient coordination in fight against terrorism, strengthen the ceasefire regime and expand access to civilian population in need of humanitarian aid."
