Jordan, US, Russia agree to maintain South Syria truce

A Jordan official said on Monday that Jordan has agreed with Russia and the US on the importance of maintaining a de-escalation zone in southern Syria.

He said the 3 countries that signed last year's deal to create the zone agreed on the need to preserve it as a key to reaching a political solution in Syria.

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the Syrian army is the only force that should be in southern Syria, at the border with Jordan and Israel. Lavrov said he hopes the US will withdraw from At-Tanf region in southeastern Syria.
