New Nationwide Syrian Ceasefire Brokered By Russia, Turkey, & Iran
"Russia and Turkey have reached an agreement on a plan that would involve a ceasefire between the Syrian governmental forces and the opposition armed groups on a nationwide scale, Turkey's foreign minister said.

The minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that the two countries have come to an agreement on the ceasefire issue and even prepared a text of the truce accord to be presented to the warring parties.

"There are two texts ready on a solution in Syria. One is about a political resolution and the other is about a ceasefire. They can be implemented any time," Cavusoglu told reporters on the sidelines of an awards ceremony at the presidential palace in Ankara, as cited by Reuters.

A source in the Russian Foreign Ministry also confirmed the existence of the agreement to Gazeta.ru.

However, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on the agreement reportedly reached by Moscow and Ankara. “I cannot answer this question now, I do not have sufficient information right now,” he said, in reply to a question about the agreement, as cited by TASS.

However, he confirmed that Russia and Turkey are engaged in a “constant” discussion in Astana of the possibilities of talks between the various sides in the Syrian conflict.

The ceasefire plan is expected to be implemented in all areas where the Syrian Army is engaged in a fight with the armed opposition and will come into force as early as midnight on Wednesday, December 28, (22:00 GMT), Turkish state Anadolu news agency reported earlier, citing an unidentified Turkish state official."

"The new ceasefire plan, which Ankara announced on Wednesday but Moscow was yet to confirm, was preceded by trilateral talks between Teheran, Moscow and Ankara.

Conducted at the level of foreign and defense ministers, last week’s talks resulted in a declaration which outlined the principles of a potential ceasefire.

“Iran, Russia and Turkey are ready to facilitate the drafting of an agreement, which is already being negotiated, between the Syrian government and the opposition, and to become its guarantors,” the document signed in Moscow on December 20 read.

Logoglu, who served as Turkey’s Ambassador to the US in 2001-2005, said that while every effort to bring hostilities to an end in Syria is important, the fact that Russia, Turkey and Iran endorsed this particular deal makes it more viable in comparison to previous arrangements.

The announcement of the agreement comes against the backdrop of heightened tensions between Turkey and the US. On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed the US-led coalition for supporting Kurdish militias and even Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria.

While the sharp difference in treatment of US-backed Kurdish People’s Protection Units [YPG], which Ankara considers terrorist, did not come as a groundbreaking revelation, it was for the first time the Turkish president openly accused the coalition forces of backing IS. The claims were dismissed by the US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner as ludicrous."
