Washington: The United States has not received any reports of significant violations of the ceasefire in Syria in the past 24 hours, State Department spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday.

"The early results are encouraging," Kirby added at a news briefing, commenting on the drop in fighting since a cessation of hostilities deal drawn up by the United States and Russia took effect on Saturday.
