Guterres calls on world to support Russia-Turkey deal on Idlib

UN Secretary-General António Guterres called on all the parties to the Syrian conflict to implement the agreement reached between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tajjyp Erdogan on Idlib.

Speaking on the press conference on September 20, he called on all the parties to implement the agreement with "a strong commitment to the protection of civilians, and to ensure humanitarian access, adhere to international humanitarian law and work urgently for greater progress in the Geneva process, particularly in supporting the Special Envoy [Staffan de Mistura] in the creation of a constitutional committee," UN press service reported.

The UN Secretary-General earlier said that if properly implemented, the deal could save three million civilians – including one million children – from catastrophe.
