Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency on Wednesday reported that both the Turkish and Russian governments have agreed the terms of a ceasefire in Syria.
The ceasefire, which comes into effect on midnight, aims to expand a ceasefire in the city of Aleppo, brokered by Turkey and Russia earlier this month to allow the evacuation of civilians, to all of the country, Anadolu said.
A spokesman at Turkey’s foreign ministry said he had no immediate comment on the report.
The agency added that terror groups, without mentioning which ones, will be not be part of the agreement.
Russia, Iran and Turkey said last week they were ready to help broker a peace deal after holding talks in Moscow where they adopted a declaration setting out the principles any agreement should adhere to.
Arrangements for the talks, which would not include the United States and be distinct from separate intermittent UN-brokered negotiations, remain hazy, but Moscow has said they would take place in Kazakhstan, a close ally.
A ceasefire had earlier been issued in September, brokered by the US and Russia but it quickly failed as the Syrian government continued bombing rebel-held hotspots.
