>> On the way but not there yet, United States and Russia laboring through a final cease-fire deal for Syria on Sunday. The two cold war foes speaking on the sidelines of the G20 summit in China. President Obama saying the cease-fire deal between President Assad and the rebels still face obstacles.
In a letter seen by Reuters on Sunday, the U.S. envoy in Syria confirmed the deal is closer than ever and said, this would oblige Moscow to prevent government warplanes from bombing areas held by the opposition, as well as the withdrawal of government forces from Aleppo. In return United States would coordinate with Russia in fighting against Al Qaeda.
Mixed signals from Washington though with President Obama then saying quote, we're not there yet.
anwhile fighting in Syria has not slowed with government warplanes heavily bombarding Aleppo and Turkey now in full force, with tanks battling both IS and the YPG at the border. The latest super power to enter the divisive conflict, now in its fifth year.
