Terrorists' surrender could resolve Idlib issue: Russian official

Moscow, Sept 12, IRNA – It is not possible for the Syrian government to live in peace with terrorists, said Russian president's special envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev in Geneva.

'It is impossible just to imagine that the Syrian government is living in peace with the terrorists. This is absolutely unacceptable for the international community, not only for Russia, Damascus, or Iran or Turkey… If they surrender, that would be the best decision,' Lavrentyev told reporters on Tuesday, according to Sputnik.

Lavrentyev told reporters, 'The reconciliation experience in other de-escalation zones will be very useful in Idlib, because 3.5 million civilians living there are not fully opposition-minded. The majority of them are currently simply afraid of expressing their point of view.'

'I think that there will be many people, including representatives of the moderate opposition, who will decide for themselves on whether to reach reconciliation with the current authorities.'

Idlib is the last base of the terrorists and the Syrian Army is ready to wipe out the terrorists centers.

Some Western countries and regional allies of the US are trying to stop the attack and Russia believes that threats and plots are in progress against Damascus and in line with the attempts.
