The US Secretary of State has called for immediate no-fly zones to be implemented in Syria and warned the future of the country hangs by a thread.
John Kerry said: "I believe that to restore credibility to the process [of creating a ceasefire], we must move forward to try to immediately ground all aircraft flying in those key areas [in Syria], in order to de-escalate the situation, and give a chance for humanitarian assistance to flow unimpeded.
"In Geneva, Russia [said] that Assad was prepared to live by the cessation of hostilities and would accept the idea of not flying over agreed upon areas.
"Because of what's happened over the last few days, we have to... move immediately... to implement a genuine ceasefire now.
"The future of Syria is hanging by a thread. I call on every country to cease providing support of any kind to any party that is trying to sabotage this plan", he added.
