The United States, Russia and Jordan have reached a cease-fire agreement in southwestern Syria that comes into force on Sunday.
Jordanian authorities said the truce included areas agreed by Syrian government forces and opposition groups.
The agreement was announced after meeting with US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin during their participation in the G20 summit.
Russia and the United States have been supporting various parties to the conflict in Syria since 2011.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the agreement included the areas of Daraa, Quneitra and Suwayda.
It is reported to have been the result of months of undeclared meetings between the United States and Russia over Syria.
Lavrov said Jordan would work to ensure that all parties abide by the agreement.
"I think this is our first indication that the United States and Russia are capable of working Syria in Syria," said US Secretary of State Rex Tilerson.
