Russia's Lavrov says more de-escalation zones in Syria not a priority

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that establishing more de-escalation zones in Syria was not a priority for now.

He told reporters that it was important to prevent violation of ceasefire agreements in eastern Ghouta, a situation which he planned to discuss with Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu who is on a visit to Moscow.
