Syrian opposition calls for creating mechanism to monitor ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta


The Syrian opposition’s Building the Syrian State (BSS) party welcomes the ceasefire declared in Eastern Ghouta in accordance with the United Nations Security Council resolution passed on February 24, the party said in a statement available to TASS, APA reports quoting TASS.

 

According to the statement, "the guarantor countries - Russia, Turkey and Iran - participating in the Astana process, should create a mechanism to monitor the ceasefire, which will make it possible to ensure a long-term ceasefire and produce an opportunity to extend it in the future." The BSS party stressed that "without such a mechanism, the ceasefire declared in Eastern Ghouta will be derailed."

 

"The guarantor countries should hold an emergency meeting and take necessary measures in order to put an end to ceasefire violations by the warring sides and ensure humanitarian aid deliveries to the people in need," the statement reads.

 

The BSS party was founded in the Syrian capital of Damascus in 2011. The party leader Louay Hussain is an Alawite just like Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. In February 2017, at the party’s initiative, a National Bloc, comprising secular opposition parties, was established in the Lebanese capital of Beirut.
