The "step by step" plan .. Russia reveals solution to restore Idlib

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov unveiled a “step by step” plan emanating from the trilateral summit with Iran and Turkey to restore the Syrian city of Idlib from terrorist organizations.

“According to the agreement, Russian and Turkish military will determine areas within the de-escalation zone in Idlib to conduct joint patrols there, following failure to implement the agreement last September between Moscow and Ankara”. Russian Foreign Minister said.

Lavrov added that the situation in Idlib has deteriorated significantly after “Jabhat al-Nusra” terrorist group controlled over 90% of the entire de-escalation zone, including Idlib.

Lavrov noted that patience in not endless regarding the presence of terrorists in Idlib, stressing that liberating Idlib city lies with the military.

Lavrov pointed out that a precise plan will be put in accordance with the international law and not as the terrorists were eliminated in Raqqa, stressing at the same time “certainly we will do so differently from what the United States did in Raqqa where the bodies of civilians and mines are still scattered in the streets.”
