    Russia, the United States and Jordan have agreed to form a southwestern Syria ceasefire monitoring center in Amman, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He explained that the center would maintain direct contact with opposition groups and representatives of Syrian government forces.

    "It has been agreed to use a monitoring center, which is being created by Russia, the United States and Jordan in Amman," Lavrov said at a press conference.

    Negotiators within the Astana process are "very close to a final agreement" on de-escalation zones in Homs and Eastern Ghouta, while talks are ongoing on establishing the zones in Idlib, Lavrov said.
