MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s foreign minister said the Syrian government had every right to chase “terrorists” out of the rebel-held Syrian enclave of Idlib, adding talks were ongoing to set up humanitarian corridors there, RIA and Interfax news agencies reported.

Sergei Lavrov said communication between Russia and the United States on Syria was happening in real time, and Russia had no plans to hide its actions there.
