MOSCOW -- Russia has made public a package of agreements with the United States on the Syrian settlement, the country's foreign ministry said Tuesday.

"We are publishing the text of all Russia-US deals on Syria and are calling on Washington to do the same, including making public the mandate of the Joint Implementation Center on coordination of anti-terrorist air strikes in Syria," the ministry said in a statement.

Moscow also urged Washington to fulfill its promise of separating the so-called moderate Syrian rebel forces from terrorist groups, saying that "flirting and conniving with terrorists would never lead to anything good."

On Sept. 10, Russia and the United States announced a landmark agreement on a nationwide cease-fire in Syria, which both sides hope would lead to their countries' military cooperation to end more than five years of bloodshed there.

However, crossfire has resumed in the first hours after the week-long truce deal expired on Sept. 19.
