UN Chief hails Syrian truce

New York, The United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres welcomed the cease fire resolution in Syria.

I welcome the Security Council's resolution on a ceasefire in Syria and call for all sides to allow the immediate delivery of humanitarian aid, Guterres said in a Twitter message released on Sunday.

The United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution calling for cessation of war in Syria for 30 days.

The truce consists of fighting Daesh, Al-Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda and all those groups which were recognized by the UN as terrorists.

The resolution proposed by Kuwait and Sweden was criticized by some countries due to ignoring sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria.
