WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US president Barack Obama, along with leaders of the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy, called for full implementation of the cessation of hostilities in Syria to ensure humanitarian access and progress in the power transition talks, the White House said in a press release on Monday.
"They called on all parties to respect the cessation, ensure humanitarian access, and contribute to the success of the Geneva talks on political transition in line with the Geneva Communiqué," the White House stated.
"They also called on those with influence on the parties to the conflict to press them to refrain from any actions that put the cessation and political talks at risk."
A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27. It was supported by Damascus, as well as by dozens of opposition groups on the ground. Daesh and the al-Nusra Front terror groups, both outlawed in Russia, are not part of the deal.
