Syria's mainstream opposition said on Saturday the proposed US-Russian deal could eventually end the ordeal of civilians, in its first reaction to the agreement.

Bassma Kodmani, spokeswoman for the opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC), said the body welcomed the deal "if it is going to be enforced."

The onus was on Russia as its influence "was the only way to get the regime to comply," her statement added.
