Turkey says Idlib deal going as planned, no issue in implementation

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - An agreement between Turkey and Russia to stave off a major government offensive in Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province is continuing according to plan and there are no issues in its implementation, Turkeys foreign minister said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a joint news conference with his Azeri and Iranian counterparts in Istanbul, Mevlut Cavusoglu also said if terrorists or radical groups in Idlib displayed a “different approach” to that of the agreement, Turkey would intervene.
