EU says Turkey-Russia deal on Syria's Idlib must protect civilians

A deal struck between Turkey and Russia to avoid an assault on Syria's last major rebel stronghold in Idlib province must protect civilians and ensure humanitarian access, the European Union said Tuesday.

 

"We expect that the agreement which was according to reports reached yesterday by the Russian and Turkish presidents will guarantee the protection of civilian lives and infrastructure as well as guarantee unhindered and sustainable humanitarian access," spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic told reporters.
