US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday there are many areas besides Syria where the United States and Russia can cooperate and that would be a welcomed development.
Trump noted that he had an excellent meeting with Putin last week, and they get along very well.
The southwestern Syria ceasefire entered into force at noon Damascus time on Sunday after Trump and Putin agreed to it in Hamburg. Trump said the ceasefire has held for four days.
"Those [previous] ceasefires haven't held at all. That's because President Putin and President Trump made the deal, and it's held," he stated.
The US president underscored the importance of dialogue with Moscow and reiterated that the ceasefire was a "great thing" that came out of his meeting with the Russian leader.
