US and Russia agree new Syria ceasefire deal

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump have agreed on a ceasefire deal covering south-western Syria. during talks at the G20 summit, officials from both countries said.


The deal was reached during the two leaders' meeting in Hamburg on Friday on the sidelines of the G-20 summit of industrialised and developing nations.

In comments carried by Russia's state-run TASS news agency, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the truce would come into effect at midday Damascus time (0900 GMT) on Sunday.

"The United States has made a commitment that all the groups present there will observe the ceasefire," Lavrov was quoted as saying.

It was not immediately clear which areas of south-western Syria would be covered by the upcoming ceasefire but earlier talks between the US and Russia about a "de-escalation zone" covered Deraa province, on the border with Jordan, and Quneitra, which borders the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
