Trump said that Russia and Syria can conduct point operations in Idlib

US President Donald Trump said that he is against a large-scale military operation in the Syrian province of Idlib, but believes that the Syrian and Russian military can conduct point operations there against terrorists.
Speaking at a press conference, Trump said that after reporting on the forthcoming large-scale operation in Idlib, he instructed his administration “not to allow this.”
“But this does not mean that they (Syria and Russia – ed.) Can not be selective and do what they need to do with terrorists, but you can not kill millions of people … Millions of people would perish,” the US president said.
“I hope that now (the operation) will be surgically accurate … Perhaps they need to do this,” he added.
At the same time, he attributed to himself the merit that the operation never began, and stated that “many Syrians are grateful to me.”
For his part, he again noted the actions of Russia, Syria, Iran and especially Turkey, which reached the relevant agreements.
Trump said that Russia and Iran “help the slaughter” in Syria
Idlib is the last province of Syria beyond the control of the official Damascus. The question of expelling terrorists from there, which Moscow believes is currently key, was discussed at the September 7 summit of the presidents of Russia, Turkey and Iran. The press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov, describing the situation in Idlib, called the province “a nest of terrorism.”
Later, Russian and Turkish Presidents Vladimir Putin and Tayyip Erdogan agreed to create a demilitarized zone along October 15 along the contact line of the armed opposition and government troops in the Syrian province of Idlib, and the defense ministers of the two countries signed a memorandum on stabilizing the situation in the Idliba de-escalation zone. In Tehran, it was noted that the agreement between Russia and Turkey on Syria helped to prevent the war in Idlib.
