UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Russian Foreign Ministry stressed the need to abide by all the conventions on the Syrian Idlib aimed at “combating terrorists and ensuring the safety of civilians.”
This came at a press conference held by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, Thursday, in the capital Moscow.
Zakharova said: “It is important to abide by all the agreements on Idlib (northwest), aimed at the same time to continue to fight terrorism and ensure the security of civilians.”
She added that her country would continue to cooperate with Turkey within the framework of the Sochi Agreement, which was reached on September 17, 2018.
In May 2017, Turkey, Russia and Iran announced they had reached an agreement on the “de-escalation zone” in Idlib, as part of the Astana meetings on Syria.
However, regime forces and supporters continue to launch attacks in the region, despite an understanding between Turkey and Russia in September 2018, in the Russian city of Sochi.
