    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called for making public the whole package of Russia-US agreements coordinated during the meeting between Lavrov and Kerry on September 9, 2016, as well as for approval of this package by the UN Security Council, according to the statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reiterated his proposal to make public the entire package of recent Russia-US agreements on Syria in phone talks with US State Secretary John Kerry on Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

    "The Russian minister once again called for making public the whole package of Russia-US agreements coordinated during the meeting between Lavrov and Kerry on September 9, 2016, as well as for approval of this package by the UN Security Council," the ministry said in a statement.

    The sides also agreed to continue maintaining contacts over the whole spectrum of issues of the Syrian settlement.

    On September 9, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry announced a new peace plan to address the five-year conflict in Syria that called for a ceasefire to come into force on Monday.

    If the new ceasefire in Syria lasts for seven days, Washington and Moscow will work together to establish a Joint Implementation Center and carry out joint airstrikes against terrorists in the war-torn country, according to the deal.
