New Syrian ceasefire plan ‘test for everyone’ says Russia

The ceasefire plan for Syria, drawn up by Russia and the US, is ‘a real test for everyone’ involved, according to Moscow.

In a rare interview with the foreign press, deputy foreign minister Mikhail Bogdanov told the BBC that Russia expected no violations by the Syrian government.

However, he warned that the US needed to use its influence with moderate opposition forces, to ensure that they separate themselves from groups linked to al-Qaeda.
