Iran’s foreign ministry: Russia-Turkey agreement on Syria - positive step
An agreement between Russia and Turkey to deploy their forces in northeast Syria was a positive step towards securing stability in the country, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.
"Iran welcomes any steps that will bring security and calm to Syria and to secure the country’s integrity," he said.
"The agreement between Russia and Turkey is a positive step. We hope this agreement will remove Turkey’s concerns and will bring peace and security to Syria," Reuters cited Mousavi as saying.
"Iran has always backed political means to resolve disputes...and Tehran is happy to help for talks between Syria and Turkey to reach an understanding," the spokesman added.
On October 23, Russia and Turkey reached an agreement to give 150 hours to the Kurdish-led People's Protection Units (YPG) to withdraw from a 30-km zone along the Syria-Turkey border.
