ANKARA (Reuters) – Russia will work to stop attacks in the northwestern Syrian region of Idlib after talks with a Turkish delegation in Moscow, Turkish Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Tuesday, adding that Turkey expected this to be realized.

A Turkish delegation traveled to Moscow on Monday to discuss developments in Libya and Syria, as thousands of civilians began migrating toward Turkey due to Russian and Syrian army attacks.

Speaking in Ankara following a cabinet meeting, Kalin said Turkey had asked Russia to establish a ceasefire in the region, adding that attacks in Idlib must stop “immediately”.
