Turkey welcomes U.N. ceasefire resolution on Syria: ministry

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey welcomed on Sunday a U.N. resolution demanding a 30-day truce across Syria to allow aid access and medical evacuation, the foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement.

The U.N. Security Council adopted the resolution on Saturday, as one of the deadliest air assaults of the seven-year war pounded the eastern Ghouta district this week.
