    UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura assessed highly in a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Russia’s actions in Syria to ensure adherence to the ceasefire regime in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to the statement, Lavrov and de Mistura noted the importance of consolidating positive results reached in intra-Syria talks in Geneva, agreeing to maintain and increase the dynamics of the talks.

    "The special envoy assessed highly Russia’s actions to ensure adherence to the regime of cessation in hostiles in Syria, including within the framework of the memorandum on establishment of de-escalation zones in Syria, signed on May 4," the statement read.

    Russia and Turkey are the guarantors of a nationwide Syrian ceasefire regime that came into force on December 30, 2016 and has been generally observed, despite continued reports of violations.
