    US Senator Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called on Saturday to make details of the Syria ceasefire agreement reached by US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov available for the Senate.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry announced a new plan on Syria, which stipulates a ceasefire that will come into force on September 12.

    “We have inquired with the administration about the details of the ceasefire agreement in Syria and have been referred to the public comments made by Secretary Kerry and Foreign Minister Lavrov. We think it is appropriate for the details to be made fully available to all parties involved, including the United States Senate,” Corker said, as quoted by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee website.
