The July round of negotiations is expected to finalize details of so-called "safe zones" to be set-up in Syria.

Deraa city lies within an existing plan brokered by Iran, Russia and Turkey in the Kazakh capital, Astana, in May to create four de-escalation zones in Syria. Russian Federation also expects progress on Syria at a July 7 G20 summit in Germany, said Mr Bogdanov.

In an emailed statement, the office of United Nations special mediator for Syria Staffan de Mistura said he wished to convene a seventh round of Geneva talks in July and further rounds in August and September, reported Reuters news agency. Check out the latest defense news.

Staffan de Mistura's office said the aim was for delegates to arrive in the Swiss city on July 9 and for talks to start the next day, although it did not say how long the round is expected to last.


Tribal forces and border police, supported by Iraqi and USA -led coalition aircraft, took part in the operation to take the al-Waleed crossing, the Iraqi Joint Operations Command said in a statement Saturday. And so there is a race underway between USA -aligned and Iran-backed forces in both countries to recapture both sides of the border from the Islamic State.

The Syrian army has suspended combat operations in the southern city of Deraa for 48 hours, as mediators announced two separate attempts to convene new peace talks next month.

The announcement comes days after the contested city witnessed some of the worst fighting in months amid fears by opposition activists that the government will try to take Daraa, where the country's civil war began in 2011.

The Syrian army general command said the ceasefire, effective at 0900 GMT on Saturday, was being implemented to support "reconciliation efforts", according to a statement carried by state news agency SANA.

The ceasefire may alleviate pressure on pro-Assad forces, thereby allowing the regime to push for more territory on the border of Iraq and Syria.
