An agreement with Turkey on Syria’s Idlib province has not been fully implemented, raising concerns in Moscow and Damascus, Interfax news agency quoted a Kremlin spokesman as saying on Sunday, Reuters reported.

Syrian government ally Russia and Turkey, which backs Syrian rebels, agreed in September of last year to create a demilitarized zone around the last rebel-held enclave of Idlib.

Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, on Wednesday said the situation in Idlib was rapidly deteriorating.

The territory is now almost under full control of Nusra militants, she added.
