ANKARA (Reuters) - The Syrian opposition will abide by a ceasefire deal guaranteed by Turkey and Russia and will take part in future talks, a spokesman for the Free Syrian Alliance (FSA) rebel group said on Thursday.

Osama Abu Zaid the ceasefire covered the whole of Syria. He said the FSA rebel alliance had not met with anyone from the Syrian government during the latest ceasefire talks.
