Russia, Turkey agree on borders of demilitarised zone in Syrian

AFP
Russia and Turkey have agreed on the borders of a demilitarised zone in northern Syria. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said this after talks with his Bosnian counterpart Igor Crnadaksaid yesterday.

Moscow says the demilitarised zone would help stop attacks from the last rebel enclave in Idlib on Syrian army positions and Russia's military bases in the region.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed the establishment of the 15 to 20 kilometre buffer zone on Monday.

Security in the zone, which includes parts of Idlib and neighbouring provinces including the city of Aleppo, will be overseen by Turkish contingents and Russian military police.

The agreement will prevent military action against the city of Idlib, Russia's defence minister said.
