Moscow: Turkey's non-implementation of its obligations worsened situation

The Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed that Moscow considers Ankara's failure to implement its obligations as a reason for aggravating the situation in Idlib, Syria.

The Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a press conference: "The reasons for the current deterioration we are witnessing are represented in Turkey's chronic failure to fulfill its obligations under the Sochi memorandum of September 17, 2018."

She continued: "Under the current circumstances, we consider that the main tasks are to reduce the level of violence on the ground, ensure the security of the military personnel for the guarantor countries located inside and outside the De-escalation zone, as well as preventing the provocation of possible armed confrontation as a result of irrational military actions."

In the meantime, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuş Oglu contradicted the President Erdogan's talk about the Sochi agreement saying that his country continues to work with Russia to stabilize the ceasefire in the Syrian city of Idlib, pointing out that the Sochi agreement is still in place despite obstacles.
