Lavrov: Terrorists cannot be allowed to stay in Idleb

Moscow, SANA – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the terrorist organizations continue carrying out provocations in the de-escalation zone in Idleb, adding that those terrorists cannot be allowed to stay there.

Lavrov’s statement came during a joint press conference with Foreign Minister of Bangladesh AK Abdul Momen in Moscow on Monday.

Lavrov said that the terrorist organizations, especially Jabhat al-Nusra, are controlling most of Idleb province, and they continue to breach the de-escalation zone agreement there by attacking civilians and carrying out provocations against the Syrian Arab Army, which cannot be tolerated, and they cannot be allowed to stay in Idleb.

He said there is a disagreement over the fate of these foreign terrorists captured by the United States in Syria, as the Americans are threatening to release them all, which would be a terrible crime, while the Western countries from which these terrorists came are refusing to take them back.
