Russia expects Turkey to encourage the Syrian opposition to abide by the memorandum on de-escalation zones signed by the three guarantor countries on Thursday, Russian Special Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told reporters on Friday.
The Kremlin's plan is similar to calls by U.S. President Donald Trump for "safe zones" in Syria, and Putin said Trump seemed to support the idea when the leaders talked Tuesday by phone.
The Russian diplomat added that some technical aspects needed to be clarified that concern the monitoring of the memorandum's implementation and the possibility to use aircraft in the de-escalation zones.
Iran, Russia and Turkey have agreed on a plan to create safe zones in Syria with the aim of alleviating civilian hardship. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday ways to monitor the zones would be an issue for separate talks. But the full details of the proposal were not made available and prospects for its success appeared bleak.
The Syrian opposition has suspended their participation in the talks because they object to Iran's being a signatory to the agreement, as "they are aggressors".
The zones, which may be expanded to include other locations, cover areas inhabited by about 2.7 million people, he said.
The walkout and the comments underline the huge difficulties of implementing such a deal. The agreement said "the parties agreed to take all necessary measures to continue the fight" against designated terrorist groups "within and outside" the zones.
