Russia and Turkey delay implementation of deescalation deal in Idlib

Russia and Turkey plan to give more time for the implementation of their de-escalation deal in the Syrian province of Idlib, a "great relief" for an area of 3 million civilians, UN humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland told reporters on Thursday.
Speaking after a regular Syria humanitarian meeting in Geneva, he also said Russia told the meeting that Syria had withdrawn its controversial Law 10, which allowed expropriation of land and property from refugees.
A Russian diplomat told the meeting that any reference to the law being in effect was a mistake, Egeland said.
