Russia, Turkey prepare consultations on Syria's Idlib: Lavrov

Monday - February 24, 2020 10:11 pm , Category : WORLD
Moscow, Feb 24 (IANS) Russia and Turkey are planning a series of consultations regarding Syria's last rebel stronghold of Idlib, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.

Moscow hopes both countries can ensure Idlib becomes a real de-escalation zone, free of militants, Lavrov said at a press conference, Xinhua news agency reported.

The de-escalation zone in Idlib is turning into "an escalation zone" as militants there attack targets outside the zone, he said.

On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the recent escalation of tensions in Idlib during a telephonic conversation.
The two countries said their militaries would continue to maintain close contact.
