Russia will submit its proposals on the ceasefire in Syria during a meeting of the Syria Support Group in Munich. It’s scheduled on February 11.”
However, the ceasefire won’t be possible if the Syrian-Turkish border is open.
“The key point for the ceasefire to work is a task of blocking illegal trafficking across the Turkish-Syrian border, which supports the militants,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. “Without closing the border it is difficult to expect the ceasefire to take place.”
Thus, Russia sees no reason to stop the operation of its Aerospace Force in Syria.
“The aim of the operation is to defeat the Islamic State (IS) and Jabhat al-Nursa terrorist groups. I see no reason why the Russian Aerospace Forces operation in Syria should be stopped until terrorists are defeated,” Lavrov said.
