Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reaffirmed the importance of eliminating terrorist organizations in Idleb province, adding that the Turkish regime should adhere to its commitments according to the Sochi agreement.
During a press conference with Grenada’s Foreign Minister, Peter David, in Moscow on Tuesday, Lavrov noted that terrorist organizations are in control of most areas in Idleb and they continue their provocations and target civilians, positions of the Syrian Arab Army and the Hemeimeem airbase.
Lavrov underlined the necessity of implementing the Sochi agreement and eliminating terrorist organizations, calling upon the Turkish regime to implement its commitments according to the agreement.
The Sochi agreement affirms the importance of continuing to combat all forms of terrorism in Syria, and is a part of previous agreements on the de-escalation zones, which resulted from the Astana track that began in 2017 and which are mainly based on adhering to Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and liberating all of its territories from terrorism and from any illegitimate foreign presence.
