Syrian peace talks must continue, Kremlin says
Reuters, , Tuesday 19 Apr 2016


Russia unequivocally supports the continuation of Syrian peace talks in Geneva, the Kremlin said on Tuesday, commenting on the decision by the mainstream Syrian opposition to take a pause in the negotiations.

"We believe this (the peace talks) is a necessary condition," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a conference call with journalists.
"The need to continue this dialogue and maintain the ceasefire regime was stressed yesterday during the telephone conversation between President Putin and President Obama."

The Western-backed opposition High Negotiations Committee said in a letter to rebel fighters that government military advances meant a ceasefire was effectively over and it was calling a postponement in the talks.
