A Turkish Foreign Ministry delegation will hold a meeting on Syria and Libya in the Russian capital Moscow on Monday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

Turkey's diplomatic sources announced that Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal and the delegation travelled to Russia on Sunday to discuss Russian President Vladimir Putin's expected visit to Turkey on January 8.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday said Turkey along with Russia was making all-out efforts to end the attacks in Idlib and that the delegation would hold talks regarding these efforts.

"We will determine the steps we will take according to the results," Erdogan said.

In September 2018, Turkey and Russia agreed to turn Idlib into a de-escalation zone in which acts of aggression are expressly prohibited.

Since then, more than 1,300 civilians have been killed in attacks by the regime and Russian forces in the de-escalation zone as the cease-fire continues to be violated.
