On Tuesday, 1,237 were stopped at the Syrian border, 51 at the frontier with Iran and 13 were arrested coming from Iraq, the General Staff said in a statement. In light of recent developments, it was mutually agreed that the de-escalation zones outlined during the Astana talks must be actualized quickly.

Tehran-Ankara-Moscow cooperation has led to several successful indirect talks between the Syrian government and the opposition groups in the Kazakh capital of Astana.

But Turkey and Russian Federation have been cooperating more over Syria in recent months, helping to extract civilians from Aleppo and then co-sponsoring peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana.
