MOSCOW - The safe zones which are being created in Syria will be closed for warplanes of the United States and those of the US-led coalition, Russian news agencies quoted Russian envoy at Syria peace talks Alexander Lavrentyev as saying on Friday.

Turkey and Iran agreed on Thursday to Russia's proposal for "de-escalation zones" in Syria, a move welcomed by the United Nations but met with skepticism from the United States.
