The Russian-American agreement on armistice in southwestern Syria is the first, "intermediate step" towards a more comprehensive and long-lasting ceasefire throughout the country. This was announced to The Hill by an unnamed official representative of the State Department, who participated in the negotiations.

The purpose of this agreement, he said, is to try to shield the "relatively quiet" southern Syria from war, as well as the need to create a "more comprehensive zone of de-escalation in the south-west" of the country and provide "a more favorable environment for the broadest possible discussion of the situation."

The interlocutor stressed that "this is the first step towards a more complex and reliable agreement on a ceasefire and settlement, as well as the de-escalation of the conflict in Syria."

According to the representative of the State Department, the issue of ceasefire control will be the subject of negotiations in Kazakhstan, where, according to him, an agreement to settle the conflict in other zones is also expected.

Several sources in the US administration on July 7 told The Associated Press and Reuters about the agreement between Russia and the United States on a ceasefire in southwestern Syria.
