All parties must respect truce in Syria: US State Department

QAMISHLI, Syria (North Press) – All parties must respect the truce in Syria, US State Department said on Monday.

In a reply to a question by Rudaw Media Network, the US State Department spokesperson stressed, “It is important for all parties to respect the truce in Syria in order to maintain stability.” 

This comes in light of the escalation of the Turkish threats against northeast Syria, without any reaction by the guarantor states, i.e. Russia and the US.

“Work must be done to achieve a political solution for the crisis in the country,” he added.

in October 2019, Turkey signed two ceasefire agreements with the US and Russia following the military operation called “Peace Spring” through which it controlled the two cities of Sere Kaniye (Ras al-Ain) and Tel Abyad in northern Syria.
