More time needed to set up demilitarized zone in Syrian Idlib, says Russian envoy

ASTANA, November 28./TASS/. Additional time is needed to create a demilitarized zone in Syria’s Idlib province, Russian Presidential Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev told reporters on Wednesday.

"All parties have confirmed unconditional commitment to the achieved agreements, including between the presidents of Russia and Turkey," he said. "Additional time is needed to set up a demilitarized zone, but the process is underway, although the number of ceasefire violations has increased somewhat over the recent time," Lavrentyev said.
