MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will spell out its stance on the United Nations’ call for a global truce, so the world can focus on the coronavirus epidemic, in the coming days after consultations are completed, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday

French President Emmanuel Macron has said he has secured the agreement of three of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, to back the call and hopes Russia, which is also a member, will support it.
