Secretary of State John Kerry announced that major world powers have reached a ceasefire in Syria that will begin in one week.
The US was among 17 nations to meet in Munich to figure out a way to dial down violence in Syria. The group also has agreed to speed up and commit additional resources to humanitarian aid to the country.
But Kerry cautioned that while an agreement has been reached, it still takes the full commitment of each country to make the ceasefire a lasting reality.
