MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. More than 37,500 people were evacuated from the eastern quarters of Syria’s Aleppo lately, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said after a trilateral meeting with his Russian and Iranian counterparts Sergey Lavrov and Mohammed Javad Zarif in Moscow on Tuesday.
"All in all a total of 37,500 people have been evacuated from Aleppo," he said. "Russia made a major contribution to this."
Cavusoglu did not specify over what period of time the nearly 40,000 people were taken out of Aleppo, though.
In the meantime, according to the International Red Cross, 25,000 managed to leave eastern Aleppo on December 15-19. Another 750 people were evacuated from the Shi’ite villages of Foua and Kefraya. The International Red Cross believes that the evacuation from Aleppo will take another several days to complete.
Lavrov said Russia hoped the evacuation would last another day, two at the most.
