GENEVA The United States and Russia made progress on Friday on proposals for a nationwide ceasefire in Syria, but technical details still needed to be worked out and it was not clear if a final deal could be reached, a senior official of the U.S. State Department said.
The official made the comments after a day of talks in Geneva between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
"Discussions continue into the early evening, as technical issues are worked out between the two teams," the official said. "We are not in a position right now to say whether or not a final deal can be reached."
