Russia, Turkey, Iran Agree on Mechanism to Monitor Ceasefire Regime In Syria

Ankara, Moscow and Tehran have agreed on the establishment of a trilateral mechanism to monitor the ceasefire regime in Syria, the Anadolu news agency reported Tuesday citing own diplomatic source.

The mechanism is reportedly aimed to allow sides to succesfully monitor the ceasefire regime in the areas where it’s implemented.

As SF noted yesterday, the first goal of the ongoing task is to impose the ceasefire gime in the areas where it’s possible and to improve the humanitarian condictions in these areas.

Talks about a political solution of the crisis “in general” is, de-facto, not the first priority of the talks because such a decision, for sure, will take much more time.

Talks on the Syrian settlement began in the Kazakh capital of Astan on January 23 with the participation of a number of delegations, including representatives of the “opposition”, Damascus, Russia, Iran and Turkey.
