Text size Aa Aa

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s foreign ministry said on Thursday the process of separating radical militants from moderate opposition groups in the demilitarised zone in Syria’s Idlib region had not yet been successfully achieved.

Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the process, which was launched as part of a deal between Turkey and Russia in September, had not been successful despite efforts by Ankara.
