Oglu: Turkey will conduct joint patrols with Russia in Idlib
Turkish Foreign Minister Mouloud Zhaoshoglu said on Tuesday (September 18th) that his country would promote the deployment of troops in Idlib after the agreement on a demilitarized zone.
Oklu stressed that Ankara would patrol with Russia in the framework of an agreement with Moscow.
The Interfax news agency has quoted Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shweigo as saying that the forces of the Syrian regime and its allies will not carry out a new military operation in the province of Idlib.
It is noteworthy that the Turks and Russians agree in Sochi to establish a “demilitarized zone” separating the areas controlled by the armed factions (linked to Turkey) from the control areas of the regime forces in mid-October, with the Russian military police and the Turkish army responsible for security. The area extends along the seam line with a width of between 15 and 20 kilometers, where the “jihadi organizations” are supposed to withdraw, according to a trader, headed by the Sham Liberation Organization, to withdraw heavy weapons outside the “isolated zone” next month. In addition, he will open the two international routes, Aleppo Hama, Aleppo and Latakia, before the movement of transport and transit by the end of this year, with the effort of the Turkish side.
