AMMAN - Syria's mainstream political opposition said on Saturday it had not received a copy of the US-Russian peace deal and would only react after consulting members, some of whom have expressed skepticism about the success of the deal.

A spokeswoman from the Riyadh-based High Negotiations Committee had earlier welcomed any deal that spared lives of civilians and cast doubt on whether Moscow would be able to put pressure on its ally Damascus to stop indiscriminate bombing.
