Syria Deal Reached

Russia, Iran and Turkey have signed a deal calling for the setup of de-escalation zones in war-torn Syria during talks in Kazakhstan's capital, Astana.

The signing ceremony on Thursday was briefly interrrupted by members of the Syrian opposition delegation, who condemned Iran's participation in the deal.


Syria's civil war, currently in its seventh year, has killed hundreds of thousands of people and has drawn in world powers on all sides.

The talks in Astana are sponsored by opposition supporter Turkey and Syrian government backers Russia and Iran.

Let's see how long even this minimal deal lasts.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
