Russia has demanded that Turkey do more to tackle hardcore fighters in Syria's Idlib province and fulfil promises it made as part of a deal with Moscow last year.Turkey, which backs moderate Syrian rebels, and Russia, the Syrian government's principal foreign ally, agreed in September to create a demilitarised zone in northwest Idlib region that would be evacuated of all heavy weapons and hardline fighters.
Speaking at a news conference in Moscow on Thursday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the situation in Idlib was rapidly deteriorating and Tahrir al-Sham was trying to seize control of the entire area.
Given the extremely difficult situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone, we expect our Turkish partners to activate their efforts to ultimately turn the tide and to fully carry out the obligations they took upon themselves," Zakharova said in a statement.
