    NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg praised Turkey's contribution to Syrian ceasefire in a phone conversation with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, media reported Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Daily Sabah newspaper said citing diplomatic sources that Stoltenberg had stressed that NATO was fully supporting the ceasefire process during the phone call.

    Stoltenberg and Cavusoglu discussed further steps on Syria crisis settlement and agreed on meeting in person in the near future.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Thursday that the Syrian government and armed opposition groups had reached an agreement on a nationwide ceasefire in Syria under mediation of Turkey and Iran, and on readiness to start peace talks.

    Russia and Turkey act as co-guarantors of the new ceasefire and have already opened a hotline to that end.
