    Moscow says there is an agreement to hold a three-way meeting between Russia, the US and Jordan to discuss the de-escalation zone in southern Syria.

    The announcement came as it was reported that Syrian government forces were being sent to the area in preparation for an offensive.

    Such an attack could compromise an area that is part of the de-escalation zone agreement.
