"The agreement between Russia and Turkey on a ceasefire in northern Syria is a positive step," Tass quoted Mousavi as saying.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that in accordance with agreements with the United States and Russia, Ankara is completing the military operation "Source of Peace", but this does not mean that Turkey will completely leave Syria.

On Tuesday, October 22, negotiations between Putin and Erdogan took place in Sochi.

The parties agreed to bring the Russian military police and the Syrian military into the zone outside the Turkish operation in the SAR.
