Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters after the session the ceasefire was a “defined agreement” and could be a precursor to further cooperation in Syria.
“This is our first indication of the US and Russia being able to work together in Syria,” Tillerson said. The leaders had a “lengthy discussion of other areas in Syria where we can work together” – said Tillerson, who was in the meeting with the leaders.
