Iran welcomes an agreement between Turkey and Russia over Idlib province in northwestern Syria and was consulted before it was announced, Lebanon's al-Mayadeen TV station reported on Tuesday, citing Iran's foreign ministry spokesman.

Under the agreement announced on Monday after a meeting between the presidents of Russia and Turkey, Russian and Turkish troops are to enforce a new demilitarised zone in the Idlib region from which "radical" rebels will be required to withdraw by the middle of next month.

Iran has fought as an ally of President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian conflict alongside Russian forces.
