AFP , Wednesday 6 Jul 2016

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday welcomed the Syrian army's declaration of a 72-hour ceasefire but said he was working with Russia and others to transform it into a lasting truce.

"We very much welcome the Syrian army's declaration of a period of quiet in celebration of Eid. We very much hope it will be honored by all parties," Kerry told reporters during a visit to ex-Soviet Georgia.
