BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – In a recent telephone conversation with the President of the Syrian Negotiation Commission (SNC) Nasr Al-Hariri, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov discussed the latest developments inside the Idlib Governorate and his government’s assessment of the Sochi agreement.

“The sides exchanged views on the current situation in Syria, especially in the Idlib de-escalation zone, as well as efforts to promote political settlement of the Syrian crisis on the basis of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Tuesday, as quoted by the Tass News Agency.

With the Idlib Governorate mostly cordoned off from the Syrian military, the opposition groups have shifted their attention to a potential political solution.

According to a source in Damascus, the Russian government is working directly with the Syrian opposition and Turkey to expand on the Sochi agreement and possibly reopen the main highway from the Syrian capital to Gaziantep in southern Turkey.

Turkey and Russia have been in talks regarding this main highway for some time now and it appears that they are in position to reopen it with proper security.

These are not zio, these are Turkey+Qatar puppets.
Let’s hope they don’t leave and so face the consequences you say.
The world doesn’t needs jihadists, no matter if Sunni or Shia.
We’ll all do better without ISIS, Nusra/Qaeda/Muslim-Brotherhood/Hamas/etc, Hezbollah/IRGC, MUJAO, Boko-Haram, Front-Moro or whatever their names.
