Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan agreed in a phone call that a ceasefire deal in Syria would not extend to “terrorist groups”, including so-called Islamic State (IS), the Kremlin says.
Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu earlier said that any armed groups in Syria that did not observe the truce would be regarded as “terrorists”.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin says three documents have been signed:
An agreement between the Syrian government and the armed opposition on a ceasefire
A document concerning measures for overseeing the ceasefire
An agreement to start peace talks
The Russian defence ministry has published a list of groups (in Russian) which it says have agreed to support today’s ceasefire deal.
