Turkey-Russia Deal Could Secure Lasting Peace in IdlibTurkey-Russia Deal Could Secure Lasting Peace in Idlib

Syria's Idlib region could eventually experience sustainable peace in the future, if the recent ceasefire deal between Turkey and Russia is respected, an expert said.
According to Hassan Hanizadeh, an expert on West Asian affairs, Russia is acting as the guarantor of ceasefire and a joint Syrian-Russian commission is to be set up to oversee the truce.
"In the framework of the agreement, the Syrian government has emphasized that Turkey needs to assure it would not support terrorist groups in the region," he told ISNA.
