Russia, Turkey, Iran agree on Syria de-escalation zones

ASTANA (Reuters) - Russia, Turkey and Iran have agreed to set up de-escalation zones in Syria for six months, negotiators for the three nations said in a joint statement on Friday after talks in Kazakhstan.

The zones will include, fully or partly, Eastern Ghouta, the provinces of Idlib, Homs, Latakia, Aleppo and Hama, according to the statement. The six-month term may be extended in the future.
