Russia-US Syria Truce Pact Should Promote Start of Inclusive Intra-Syrian Talks
BISHKEK (Sputnik) – A Russian-US ceasefire agreement in Syria envisions the fight against both Daesh terrorist group and the fundamentalist militants formerly known as the Nusra Front, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Sputnik Radio on Friday.

"The documents that we endorsed with [US Secretary of State] John Kerry sets out in black and white that we will coordinate our actions against the Nusra Front and against the Daesh," Lavrov said.

The September 9 Russian-US pact that entered into force on Monday foresees the countries' anti-terrorism coordination through a Joint Implementation Center if the truce holds up successfully for a week.

Nusra renamed itself the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham late in July after a proclaimed split from the al-Qaeda terrorist group.
