Turkey, Russia plan Syria ceasefire before New Year: Ankara

Turkey and Russia are planning to implement a countrywide ceasefire in Syria before the start of the New Year, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Thursday. The ceasefire could be put in place “at any moment”, the minister told A Haber television after reports a day earlier that Turkey and Russia had agreed a deal. Turkish state-run news agency Anadolu said Wednesday that Turkey and Russia had agreed a nationwide truce plan for Syria but none of the key players in the conflict offered an immediate confirmation.
