    Bashar Jaafari, the head of the Syrian government delegation to the Astana talks, welcomed the signing of the memorandum on four safe zones in the country, expressing hope for swift implementation.

    ASTANA (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, Russia, Turkey and Iran, the Syrian ceasefire guarantor states, adopted a memorandum on four safe zones in the country.

    "Syria supports the Russian initiative on de-escalation zones… Syria affirms continuation of the war against terrorism…We wish that our Russian, Iranian friends will discuss details of implementation of this memorandum as soon as possible, " Jaafari told reporters.

    The nationwide Syrian ceasefire regime was introduced on December 30, 2016. Terrorist organizations are not part of the ceasefire.
