Amid the conflict in Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in the first week of March, as the Anadolu news agency reports, referring to Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.
According to him, the regime of Bashar al-Assad is fired at settlements, hospitals, schools, and positions of the Turkish military in the area of the city of Idlib.
At the same time, he has noted that it cannot be argued that Russian forces carry out airstrikes on Turkish soldiers.
He noted that Turkey and the Russian Federation are doing everything possible to achieve peace in the region.
As we reported before, NATO head Jens Stoltenberg urged Russia and Syria to halt their Idlib offensive and said the military alliance stood in solidarity with member state Turkey, which lost 33 soldiers in an airstrike by Syrian government forces.
Syrian government forces, backed by Russian airpower, have launched an assault to capture the northwest Idlib region, the last remaining territory held by rebels who are backed by Turkey against President Bashar al-Assad in the nine-year conflict.
