PARIS- France's foreign minister said on Thursday it wanted to receive the text of a ceasefire deal agreed between the United States and Russia to ensure there was no confusion as to who was being targeted on the ground.

"If there is confusion... then there is a also a risk of the moderate opposition being hit," France's foreign minister said in remarks confirmed by his entourage. "At one point we're going to be asked to support in greater detail this plan, so to do that we will need to have all the information."France, a member of the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State, is a key backer of rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar aAssad's forces and has previously voiced its concerns over how Washington negotiates with Moscow.
