Putin: Mechanism to be established to monitor ceasefire in Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that his country and the United States were ready to set up an implementation and monitor mechanism to ensure respect of a ceasefire in Syria.
   Putin’s remarks came hours after Washington and Moscow announced plans for a cessation of hostilities in Syria that would take effect from Saturday.
The statement said the truce did not include so-called Islamic State and al-Qaeda linked Nusra Front.
   Putin added that a “hot line” would be created and if necessary a working group would be set up for exchanging information, to achieve the truce.
