Putin: Agreement reached on Syria ceasefire

Russian President Vladimir Putin says an agreement has been reached on a countrywide ceasefire plan for Syria, with Russia and Turkey to act as guarantors.


Syrian state news agency SANA said on Thursday that the ceasefire announcement excluded the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, the group formerly known as al-Nusra Front.

Putin said the truce was set to begin at midnight on Thursday (22:00 GMT) and would be followed by peace talks between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government and the opposition in the Kazakh capital Astana.

He also said that the Russian military had been ordered to scale down its presence in Syria, where it has been providing crucial support to Assad's forces.
