    The ceasefire in Syria is for the most part upheld, France's Foreign Minister said Wednesday.

    PARIS (Sputnik) — The cessation of hostilities came into effect at midnight on February 27 Damascus time, after the United States and Russia reached an agreement on a ceasefire between the Syrian government and opposition groups to help end the country’s civil war.

    "[Foreign Minister] Jean-Marc Ayrault reported on the situation in Syria. According to the minister, the cessation of hostilities appears to be mostly upheld," government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said following a cabinet meeting.
