Turkey's Foreign Ministry posted an official statement in connection with the establishment of the cease-fire in Syria on the first day of the holy Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha.
The Office stresses that the ceasefire is crucial for the delivery of humanitarian aid to Syria, and to stop the bloody battles in the state as well, especially in Aleppo:
“Ankara is ready to send humanitarian aid to the Aleppo residents at the UN line. Ankara will continue its efforts to ensure the implementation of the agreement to reduce the violence, alleviate suffering and to resume negotiations towards a peaceful settlement in Syria,” the Ministry stated.
The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had offered the initiative to establish peace regime in Syria even before the holiday. The issue was raised at a personal meeting with his US counterpart Barack Obama during the Big Twenty summit, as well as in a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But Russia and the United States reached an agreement on a cease-fire in Syria just a couple of days ago.
September 10, following the news about the Russian-American ceasefire agreement, the fighting have resumed in the southern Syrian city of Aleppo.
