MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry met in Geneva overnight. They agreed on a new nationwide ceasefire for Syria, starting from sunset on Monday.
"Now it all depends on a prompt implementation," Steinmeier was quoted as saying. "I call on parties to the conflict in Syria and in the region to stick to the agreement reached by Washington and Moscow and stop fighting on Monday at the latest."
Russia and the United States also agreed to set up a joint center for coordinating airstrikes on Islamist targets in Syria a week after the ceasefire comes into being. The plan is to separate Daesh and al-Nusra Front terrorists from "moderate" rebels.
