The Assad regime and its Russian and Iranian allies threaten the stability of Syria and its surrounding region, the US Embassy in Syria says.

“We are very concerned by this dangerous escalation by pro-regime forces and apparent violation of the March 15 Idlib ceasefire agreement. By continuing their quest for a military victory, the Assad regime, and its Russian and Iranian allies are threatening the stability of the region,” Special Representative for Syria Ambassador James Jeffrey said.

The embassy called for “an immediate nationwide ceasefire as outlined in UNSCR 2254,” adding that the agreement is “the only way to peace, stability, and security for the Syrian people.”
