German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande call on Russia to exert pressure on the Syrian regime to uphold a ceasefire in the country.
After speaking in a telephone conference call with Russia's Vladimir Putin, Britain's David Cameron and Italy's Matteo Renzi, the two leaders say there has been some progress since a cessation of hostilities went into effect last week.
"We all agreed that the political process must begin as soon as possible, because it will be the foundation for a transformation," Merkel says.
