CAIRO (Sputnik) — George Sabra added that Russia should exert pressure on its allies to strengthen the truce and to implement the articles of the ceasefire, related to the deliveries of the humanitarian aid.
"There is no more need in partial or temporary ceasefire. There is need in a full-scale ceasefire throughout the country that will be in force permanently. There should be a clear, resolute position regarding those, who violate the truce," George Sabra said.
Syria has been mired in civil war since March 2011, with government forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.
The ceasefire, negotiated with the help of the United States and Russia, has been in place in parts of Syria since February 27. A new truce — the so-called regime of silence — was hammered out on April 29 for Damascus suburbs and the northern Latakia province.
