Turkey and Russia have agreed on the framework of a nationwide ceasefire plan in Syria.

The plan aims to extend the ceasefire deal in Aleppo to the whole country. The ceasefire, which does not apply to terrorist groups, will take effect from midnight.

 Turkish state media reports that if the plan succeeds, the regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the opposition are expected to start peace talks in Astana, Kazakhstan.

The talks are likely to take place in mid-January and will be brokered by Turkey and Russia.
