The UN special envoy for Syria has given an upbeat assessment of truce in Syria, saying the ceasefire agreement engineered by the US and Russia has been holding across the country despite minor breaches.

Staffan de Mistura said during a briefing in the Swiss city of Geneva on Thursday that clashes are being reported from areas in Syria like Homs, Hama, Latakia and Damascus.

But he added that the warring sides have been respecting the cessation of hostilities in general.
