Amman, Washington, and Moscow have signed a deal for a partial cessation of hostilities in the southern provinces of Syria based on “de-escalation zones” that they brokered last July.

Jordan’s State Minister for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said Saturday that the agreement on the ceasefire regime in southwestern de-escalation zone is a “key step” to ending the violence and creating the “proper conditions” for a sustainable political solution to the crisis in the country.

Momani has also noted that the presence of non-Syrian forces should be excluded from de-escalation zones and surrounding areas.

The development comes after Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump earlier on Saturday said in a joint statement that they had agreed on the continuation of the Amman Monitoring Center’s work to observe the ceasefire regime in Syria’s southwestern de-escalation zone.

The new de-escalation zone has become the latest area in Syria that was created to soothe tensions in the war-torn country. Russia, Iran, and Turkey have agreed on the establishment of the de-escalation zones — areas in Syria where the government forces and various militant factions stop fighting for six months.
