Tehran Upbeat on UN-Backed Syria Truce

Iran has expressed hope that a new UN resolution demanding a month-long truce across Syria would help reduce violence and allow for delivery of humanitarian assistance.
"We hope the new resolution could secure ceasefire across Syria and allow humanitarian aid to reach all parts of the country," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi told a press briefing in Tehran on Monday, Fars News Agency reported.
The UN Security Council voted unanimously on Saturday for a ceasefire across the war-torn state.  
The painstakingly negotiated resolution called for all parties to "cease hostilities without delay" across the country to enable the "safe, unimpeded, and sustained delivery of humanitarian aid and services and medical evacuations of the critically sick and wounded," the New York Times reported.
