Greece hails the Russian-U.S. accord on ceasefire in Syria, Greece’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement published on Sept. 11.
"This agreement should be observed by all the parties in order to stop the bloodshed, protect civilians and favor smooth distribution of humanitarian assistance," the statement reads. "We hope the ceasefire will be an important stage towards settlement of the Syrian crisis, which will put an end to the civilian conflict and the drama of the Syrian people."
The 48-hour ceasefire will begin on the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha (Kurban Bayrami) on Sept. 12 and is likely to be extended for a longer term. The ceasefire should bring to the negotiation table opponents and supporters of the ruling regime. Sergei Lavrov had to say nobody can guarantee implementation of the new agreements on Syria.
