USA and Russia agreement

The diplomats meeting in Munich agreed Friday to a cease fire in Syria’s long-running civil war and instead focus all efforts in bringing humanitarian aid to the country and millions of displaced people. The Secretary of State of the US, John Kerry, announced after meeting with the Russian Secretary and other diplomats that their aim was for the fire to cease within a week, at least from their respective sides. However, a complete cease fire seems almost impossible, as it would depend on hundreds of rebel groups also deciding to stop fighting.

This announcement signifies a huge development in a war that has already killed more than 250,000 civilians and has created the world’s worst refugee crisis since the Holocaust.
