MOSCOW - Russia and Turkey's defense ministers agreed on the need to take what they called decisive measures to stabilize the situation in Syria's Idlib province during talks on Monday, Russia's RIA news agency cited a joint statement as saying.

Russia, an important Syrian government ally, and Turkey brokered a deal in September to create a demilitarized zone in the northwest Idlib region that would be evacuated of all heavy weapons and jihadist fighters.However, the area has been the site of continued hostilities, with Russia saying that militants who used to belong to the Nusra Front group are in control of large swaths of territory.

A joint statement published after the talks between the two defense ministers in Ankara spoke of "the need in particular to take decisive measures to ensure security in the Idlib demilitarized zone," RIA reported.
