Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin said that Russia and Turkey have determined the borders of the demilitarized zone in Syria's Idlib.

Iran PressEurope: "The borders of the demilitarized zone have been already determined," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin said in an interview with Sputnik.

"very good contacts, cooperation, ties have been established between the military of Turkey and Russia," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister noted.

Presidents of Russia and Turkey met  On September 17 to try to come to an agreement over the Syrian's Idlib.

"They have already met more than once after signing the document," Sergey Vershinin added.

"We have a lot of issues to discuss, including difficult ones,”  Vladimir Putin said at the start of the talks at his residence in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi.

The agreement was aimed at prevention of the possible offensive of the Syrian government's troops in the province of Idlib, which remains the last stronghold of insurgency.

Recently, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov emphasised that only the Syrian people can decide the future of their country, stressing the fact that the US behaviour towards Idlib indicates that it wants to protect Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist outfit.

Hundreds of terrorists and their families were recently evacuated from southern Syria  and  lodged in the northwest of the country, in Idlib province.
