Russia welcomes the Syrian authorities’ readiness to cease fire in areas that have seen the worst violence, voiced during a recent meeting between President Bashar Assad and UN and Arab League envoy Kofi Annan.
Russian deputy UN envoy Alexander Pankin told reporters on Wednesday that the Syrian army was already holding its fire in several districts the hardest hit by the long-running conflict.
