Staged ceasefire and reopening of aid are good starting points but complexities over forces opposed to Assad’s regime remain
The Syrian counter-terror agreement is ambitious, full of pitfalls and the best hope for a resumption of the ceasefire and peace talks in Syria.
The kernel of the agreement, reached after 13 hours of talks in Geneva on Friday, is a staged ceasefire, a reopening of humanitarian aid, followed by a grounding of the Syrian air force in those areas dominated by opposition fighters recognised by the west. A specific plan has been set out on how to deliver aid to the 250,000 citizens of Aleppo who are running out of water and fuel.
