Russia, Iran and Turkey have agreed on the boundaries of the final de-escalation zone in Idlib, Syria, the parties said in a joint statement. All four de-escalation zones in the war-torn country will remain in force for a period of six months.

The proposal to establish four de-escalation zones was signed by Russia, Iran and Turkey, with the approval of the Syrian government having been received in May 2017 in Kazakhstan's capital, Astana, RT reported.

De-escalation zones, proposed by Russia, are aimed at separating extremist groups, including self-styled Islamic State terrorists and Jabhat al-Nusra from the moderate opposition.
