The head of the Russian delegation at the Syria peace talks in the Kazakh capital of Astana, Alexander Lavrentyev, has told reporters that Russia, Iran and Turkey are approaching an agreement to send forces to control Syria’s jihadist-held Idlib province.

“We are very close to the signing of an agreement on the establishment of all four de-escalation zones, but I won’t assess this event so far,” he said. “I’d like to stress that everyone wants peace to be established on Syrian soil. And everyone realizes, understands and welcomes the entire work that is being done for establishment of the de-escalation zones,” the diplomat added.

“Participation of monitors from all three guarantor states – Russia, Turkey and Iran is envisaged” to control Idlib, he confirmed.

“However, we hope that the common sense will prevail and the opposition and will adopt a position aimed at finding peaceful solutions to the current issues, as well as points of contact with the central government,” Lavrentyev said.
