Russia, Turkey Agree On Nationwide Ceasefire Plan In Syria

Turkey and Russia have agreed on a nationwide ceasefire plan in Syria.

The agreement proposes end of hostilities in the country starting at midnight local time on December 29.

The truce agreement has to be approved by the Syrian government and does not extend to terrorist organizations operating in the country.

If the cease-fire succeeds, the Syrian government and opposition will launch peace talks in Astana (Kazakhstan) brokered by Russia and Turkey, according to Anadolu.

Earlier this month, Moscow hosted trilateral talks on a political solution to the Syria crisis between Russian, Turkish and Iranian top diplomats.

    “does not extend to terrorist organizations operating in the country”
    So, since most rebels are terrorists…
    Why do they play these games?!

      All politicians are actors and all the world is their stage. The same reason for everything? So they will look good in the evening news?

      So they can pressure for reconciliation agreements. And pressure the rebels not to do attacks while the SAA is focused elsewhere.

    Let’s proceed with military operations without delay!
