Kosachev: Space for dialogue in Syria increases as new groups join cessation of hostilities process

Moscow, The Head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian Upper House of Parliament Konstantin Kosachev said the cessation of hostilities agreement in Syria is generally observed.

At a meeting with the representatives of Syrian opposition group Damascus Platform and Syria's civil society in Moscow on Wednesday, Kosachev said that according to Russian experts, the cessation of hostilities should become more respected in general as an increasing number of groups are joining this process, therefore space for dialogue is beginning to increase.

He added that Russia should be ready to participate in the process of reconstruction and restoration of infrastructure and economy in the crisis-torn Syria.

It is not time yet to speak on the issue more specifically. But it is necessary to be ready to provide the Syrian nation with support, including in the restoration of economy, he noted.
