Moscow, – Russia has proposed the creation of four zones of reduction of tension in Syria, with safety lines along them with checkpoints and monitoring centers.

According to Russian news agency (Sputnik), the Russian proposal includes creating four zones of reduction of tensions in Idlib province, north of the city of Homs, in Eastern Ghouta and in the south of Syria.

The paper emphasizes the necessary to create conditions to drive out the ISIS from de-escalation zones with the help of the Syrian opposition.

Russia also proposed “creating safety lines along all the borders of the de-escalation zones in order to avoid direct fire between the sides of the Syrian conflict,” the paper reads.

Such lines would require checkpoints for the entrance of civilians without weapons and humanitarian deliveries, as well as monitoring centers to control ceasefire regime.

Russian proposals on de-escalation in Syria envisage possible deployment of guarantor states’ armed groups to the country for ceasefire monitoring and the creation of a joint working group to elaborate a plan with de-escalation borders shortly, the paper with Russian proposals reads.

The guarantor states would have to create conditions in de-escalation zones in which the warring sides would allow a safe return home to refugees and internally displaced persons, according to the paper. (QNA)
