WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Tuesday spoke with the heads of Germany, France and Britain about the agreement to end hostilities in Syria, the White House said.

During a video conference call, Obama was joined by British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in welcoming the cessation of hostilities deal reached in Munich earlier this month.
