Russia and Iran must halt the Syrian government's aggression, especially in the embattled cease-fire zone of Idlib, said Turkey’s foreign minister on Tuesday, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

"Despite declaring a cease-fire, the Syrian government's again stepped up its aggression on January 12, especially with the air support provided by those who support the Syrian government," said Mevlut Cavusoglu, referring to a further cease-fire declared in Idlib, northwestern Syria, last month.

His remarks, in a joint press conference with his Montenegrin counterpart Srdjan Darmanovic in the capital Podgorica, came one day after five Turkish troops were martyred and five wounded in an attack by Assad forces.

The Turkish troops are in Idlib as part of an anti-terror and peace mission.
