U.S. says hopes Syria ceasefire will be fully implemented

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Syrian ceasefire negotiated by Russia and Turkey is a positive development and the United States hopes it will be fully implemented, a State Department spokesman said on Thursday.

“Any effort that stops the violence, saves lives, and creates the conditions for renewed and productive political negotiations would be welcome,” said Mark Toner, a State Department spokesman. “We hope it will be implemented fully and respected by all parties.”
