ANKARA (Reuters) - Diplomacy between Iran, Turkey and Russia has succeeded in averting war in Idlib in northwest Syria, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday.

"Intensive responsible diplomacy over the last few weeks-pursued in my visits to Ankara & Damascus, followed by the Iran-Russia-Turkey Summit in Tehran and the meeting (in) Sochi-is succeeding to avert war in #Idlib with a firm commitment to fight extremist terror. Diplomacy works," Zarif wrote on Twitter.
