WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Wednesday said he was cautious about raising expectations regarding the agreement to pause hostilities in Syria.

But, if some progress is made in Syria, then that will lead to a political process to end the five-year-old civil war in the country, Obama told reporters after a meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah in the Oval Office.

Obama said the United States is committed to helping Jordan deal with the refugees who have fled to its borders to escape the conflicts in Syria and Iraq.
