Cease Fire in Syria

Between the January cease fire and now the February cease fire, it might make more sense for the UN to invite actual Syrians to the table to see how many really agree to a cease fire.

Ministers holding crisis talks over Syria have agreed to cease hostilities within a week, US Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Key points:

Seventeen countries agree to ‘cease hostilities’ in Syria within a week
Humanitarian aid efforts will be accelerated
Russia, US remain divided over fate of Syrian President al-Assad
The 17 countries meeting in Munich agreed “to implement a nationwide cessation of hostilities to begin in a target of one week’s time” and immediately expand delivery of humanitarian aid, he said.

“We have agreed to accelerate and expand the delivery of humanitarian aid beginning immediately,” Mr Kerry said.

Seventeen countries, but not Isis.
Seventeen countries, but no rebels.

If the ceasing is all one sided, how long will this last?
