Trump: US working on second ceasefire agreement in Syria

US President Donald Trump said that he is working with Russia to establish a second regional ceasefire in Syria.

Trump said the next ceasefire agreement would cover a "very rough part of Syria," but offered no additional details on the potential agreement or which countries were involved in the negotiations.

"By having some commutations and dialogue, we are able to have a ceasefire and it is going to go on for a while and frankly, we are working on a second ceasefire in a very rough part of Syria," Trump said during a news conference in Paris.

"And if we get that and a few more, all of the sudden you are going to have no bullets being fired in Syria. And that would be a wonderful thing," CNN cited Trump as saying.

Trump expressed optimism that the ceasefire would continue to hold, noting that the days-old ceasefire had already last a "very long period of time" relative to past ceasefires.
