WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Washington believes that aspects of the Syrian ceasefire deal brokered with Russia are too sensitive to release to the public, US Department of State spokesman Mark Toner said at a briefing on Tuesday.
"[T]here are some operational details, areas of sensitivity, we do not believe would be in the interest of the agreement, or in anyone’s interest, to share," Toner stated.
The United States expects Syria’s opposition to stop commingling with the Nusra Front within coming days, according to Toner.
"In the coming days as we [the United States] communicate with the moderate opposition and they understand that it’s… not in their interest to remain comingled with Nusra, we are going to see a separation," Toner told reporters.
Ensuring that the opposition separates from the Nusra Front, Toner added, is "absolutely critical" to the success of the ceasefire agreement in Syria reached by the United States and Russia last Friday.
On Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry urged Syrian opposition groups to separate from Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly named the Nusra Front, and he reiterated calls for all parties to abide by the ceasefire.
