JORDAN, RUSSIA, U.S. AGREE TO SUPPORT CEASEFIRE IN SOUTH SYRIA

Jordan said, Friday, it has reached a deal with the U.S. and Russia, to support a ceasefire in the south of Syria.

Jordan's Minister of State for Media Affairs, Mohammad Momani, said, the deal, to be effective on July 9 (tomorrow), entails work to support the ceasefire in southern west parts of Syria.

Momani said, Jordan, the U.S. and Russia agreed, the deal is a step towards more efforts to curb escalation in south Syria, and to allow the transfer of humanitarian assistance to the areas.

The three countries stressed that the agreement seeks to create appropriate environment, to reach a political solution to the situation in Syria, based on the Geneva talks and UN Security Council Resolution 2254, with a view to guarantee the unity and sovereignty of Syria.
