The existing system of ceasefire monitoring in Syria is not perfect and international observers should monitor the implementation of the truce, a spokesman for Syria’s Tomorrow, a liberal opposition faction, told Sputnik Wednesday.

 

“As for the monitoring of ceasefire violations, there are loopholes, when it is impossible to monitor the observance of the [ceasefire] agreement… That’s why, the monitoring system is not efficient. There should be observers on the ground not involved in the conflict, for example, the United Nations, which would implement the monitoring activities,” Monzer Akbik said.

 

A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27. It follows several months of a Russian counter-terrorist aerial campaign in Syria.
