The Syrian government on Tuesday accepted the terms of a ceasefire deal announced by the United States and Russia, according to a foreign ministry statement seen by AFP.

The statement said the government would stop armed operations but would "continue counter-terrorism efforts" against the Islamic State group, Al-Qaeda and affiliated groups. 

IS and Al-Qaeda were excluded from the ceasefire agreement announced on Monday.
