Tillerson issued the statement on Thursday before heading to the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, to join President Donald Trump, where the USA leader will also have his first face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The wide-ranging ceasefire would take effect Sunday at noon (Damascus time) in Southwest Syria. The Associated Press reports that Jordan and Israel, which borders the region, have joined the agreement to prevent the warfare between Syria's various domestic and worldwide forces from spilling into their territory.

Russian Federation is now pushing a plan along with Iran and Turkey to establish four "de-escalation zones" on the ground where air strikes would be halted.

Others, including U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, have criticized the treaty as ill-timed due to the looming threat of North Korea.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow is awaiting Washington's concrete suggestions and clarifications on the the no-fly zones in Syria.

Meanwhile on the ground in Syria the battle to recapture the city of Raqqa from self-styled Islamic State is continuing.

Before the Trump-Putin meeting, Tillerson signalled that Syria's civil war would be high on the agenda.

This could include "no-fly zones, on the ground ceasefire observers, and coordinated delivery of humanitarian assistance", Tillerson said.

The US Secretary of State stressed further that Moscow has "an obligation" to prevent any potential use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces.

As the fight against Daesh winds down, Tillerson said Russian Federation has a "special responsibility" to ensure Syria's stability. Officially, Iran's Revolutionary Guards said the volley of missiles fired at Deir al-Zour province was a response to a pair of attacks by IS militants in Tehran on June 7, the first time that the terrorist group had struck inside Iran.

The U.S. has been resistant to letting Iran gain influence in Syria - a concern shared by Israel and Jordan, neither of which wants Iranian-aligned troops amassing near their territories.

"The Syrian people should determine their country's political future through a political process", the official added.

"We can not recognize such zones", he said, after the Pentagon on several occasions used the term to justify attacks on the Syrian military and pro-Damascus forces.

Charles Lister of the Middle East Institute think-tank in Washington cautioned against a USA approach in Syria that relied on Russian Federation. "Lastly, Russia has a special responsibility to assist in these efforts". One, in Astana, is co-sponsored by Russia, Turkey, and Iran and concerns immediate cease-fire conditions.
