Russia and Turkey have hammered out a deal proposing a comprehensive ceasefire across Syria and are due to submit it to Damascus, Turkish state-run Anadolu Agency says.

The report has not yet received an official confirmation.

But it follows recent talks of Turkey, Russia and Iran on the future of the war-torn country.

The development took place after the Syrian forces secured their first major gain since the conflict began, by wielding full control over Aleppo.

The idea is for hostilities to end as of midnight of December 29.

Only organizations designated as "terrorists" by Russia and Turkey would fall out of its scope, the agency says.

The issue will be raised at forthcoming talks in Astana, Kazakhstan, where Syrian regime and opposition representatives will also take part.
