MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Russian Defense Ministry called on the Free Syrian Army to stop fighting Kurdish units to help support an impending cessation of hostilities on Monday and said it would continue air strikes against Islamic State and the former Nusra Front.

The ministry, speaking hours before the cessation of hostilities was due to take effect in Syria, also said a joint U.S.-Russian coordination center was being set up to determine Russian and U.S.-led coalition targets.
