Kerry Calls on Russia, Assad to Respect Fragile Ceasefire
"We signed up to cessation of hostilities, which is now enshrined in UN Security Council Resolution 2254, and it doesn’t call for a selective ceasefire, it calls for a nationwide ceasefire. And it applies to the Assad regime just as it applies to the opposition. As I have said previously, from day one there have been challenges in Aleppo particularly, and Latakia, to having even one day of the regime actually live out that cessation. So we’ve made it very clear that unless we get a better definition of how this cessation is going to work, how it will be enforced, who it applies to, how it is applied, we are not going to sit there while Assad continues to offensively assault Aleppo and while Russia continues to support in that effort."
