“No, they haven’t implemented [them] as of yet, but they are working on this,” Putin said when asked whether Turkey had met its part of engagements. “We see that they are working. Things are not that easy, on the contrary, everything is difficult,” the president said.
“But they are carrying out their obligations, and this demilitarized zone, which we agreed to set up, the 15 to 20-kilometer deep Idlib de-escalation zone, is being created,” the president added.
Not all militants have been withdrawn, the Russian leader said. “The Turkish partners are doing everything to comply with their commitments,” Putin said.
October 20 (October 20th) was designated as the last deadline for the militants to leave the “DMZ”, and now it’s time to see how the future of the Idlib region will take place.
