Russian deputy foreign minister said Moscow and Washington may carry out airstrikes against those who will not adhere to the ceasefire in Syria.

Moscow does not rule out that along with the United States groups in Syria not adhering to the cessation of hostilities agreement may be bombed, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said Thursday.

“I think that together with the United States we’ll bomb everyone who doesn’t join in on the ceasefire. That is our joint statement,” Bogdanov told RIA Novosti.

The deputy foreign minister announced that all warring parties in Syria must confirm their commitment to the ceasefire by noon on February 26.

Earlier this week the United States and Russia have agreed on the cessation of hostilities in Syria which is set to start on February 27.

Washington and Moscow will also share information to effectively delineate territory occupied by terrorist groups like Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) and al-Nusra Front, who are excluded from the Syrian cessation of hostilities.
