To the south and south-west of Mosul continues began a few days ago the Iraqi army offensive. Iraqis gradually pushed around “black” in an effort to go to the southern and south-western outskirts of Mosul, and then begin an immediate assault on the remainder under the control of the Caliphate of Mosul. The enemy rests in the surrounding villages, but due to the overwhelming superiority of Iraqis in the art, to stop the advance of the Iraqi army “black” can not.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow is awaiting for clarifications of the US proposal to create safe zones in Syria, but he noted that such initiatives should take into account the real situation on the ground in Syria and with the consent of the Syrian government.
Speaking after talks with his Armenian counterpart, Lavrov told reporters he touched on the topic with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of the February 16 G20 ministerial in Bonn, Sputnik reported.
“The US side said that this concept is being elaborated. We will wait for further clarifications,” Lavrov said.
The diplomat explained that “such initiatives should take into account the real situation on the ground in Syria, where many players are working with their ground forces and in Syrian airspace.”
“Of course, we will advocate that any such initiatives relating to Syrian territory are agreed with the Syrian government. Otherwise, it will probably not be easy to implement these or other steps,” Lavrov observed.
Sergey Lavrov said that Moscow is ready to consider Washington’s initiatives on cooperating to resolve the nearly six-year crisis in Syria.
“We are ready to consider, by and large, other suggestions regarding our engagement in Syria. And in this regard we hope that, as US President Donald Trump and the White House spokesman have said, the US is interested in working with us to resolve the Syrian crisis,” Lavrov said.
