BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – The residents and displaced civilians inside the Idlib Governorate will remain, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday.

“The borders of Idlib will be protected under the memorandum of understanding signed in Sochi. There would be no change in the status of Idlib,” Cavusoglu said at a news conference, as quoted by the state-owned Anadolu News Agency.

The Turkish Foreign Minister added that the newly agreed upon demilitarized zone in the Idlib Governorate will provide a safe haven for these civilians.

Cavusoglu’s comments came just one day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan traveled to Sochi to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in order to discuss the fate of the Idlib Governorate.

Claro los solo los civiles propietarios de su tierra, pero los mercenarios de Erdogan deben salir del territorio o en todo caso ser trasladado a Ankara en buses.
Putín cada ves decepciona al mundo sobre su liderazgo, se burla Israel ahora Erdogan.

Turki Foreign Minister and the President are s**t scared at the prospect of exodus of civilians along with head choppers running into Turki and vanishing. No wonder Turki is falling at the feet of Russia not to attack Idlib.

What about those who demand reconciliation? Will they be “kept in idlib”? Wouldnt there be a safe corridor for those who wish to leave? To say the zone will be for the safety of civilians means that they must be free to leave if they wish.
