Assad regime "approves" US-Russian Syria truce, HNC yet to receive details
SANA also said that Assad regime approved the agreement and a cessation of hostilities to begin in Aleppo.
Citing "informed sources", it said one of the accord’s goals was "reaching the necessary political solutions for Syria."
On its side, the opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (SNC) said on Saturday it had yet to receive "the official text" of the agreement.
"If we receive it, the HNC will study its details and the mechanisms of its implementation," according to the HNC’s Arabic-language website.
HNC member Bassma Kodmani told AFP that her group "cautiously welcomed" the deal but was sceptical that Damascus would comply.
US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday Syria truce would come into force on Monday, the first day of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.
"Today, Sergei Lavrov and I, on behalf of our president and our countries call on every Syrian stakeholder to support the plan that the United States and Russia have reached, to ... bring this catastrophic conflict to the quickest possible end through a political process," US Secretary of State John Kerry said, according to AFP.
"The United States is going the extra mile here because we believe Russia and my colleague have the capability to press the Assad regime to stop this conflict and come to the table and make peace," AFP quoted Kerry as saying.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that despite continuing mistrust, the two sides had developed five documents that would enable coordination of the fight against armed groups and a revival of Syria’s failed truce in an enhanced form, Aljazeera English reported.
"This all creates the necessary conditions for resumption of the political process which has been stalling for a long time," Aljazeera English quoted Lavrov as saying in a news conference.
