Russia, Turkey and Iran Meet in Tehran To Discuss Syria



The presidents of Russia, Turkey and Iran will meet in the Iranian capital Tehran on Friday to hold the third summit on the Syrian crisis and discuss its resolution. Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said the leaders will focus on the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone.

The first trilateral meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was held in Sochi, Russia on November 22, 2017, followed by another summit in Ankara on April 4. All the sides issued a joint statement expressing plans to continue their effort.

“All the heads of the states are anticipated to discuss the situation along the de-escalation zone in Idlib, where the remaining ISIS terrorists are holed-up, especially of Jabhat al-Nusra.

Recently, the ISIS terrorists have become more active by launching infinite attacks and using homemade drones in particular against the Russian base. The three leaders according to Russian news agency TASS will also touch upon the likelihood of multiple provocations staging the use of chemical weapons by Damascus.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will also hold bilateral dialogue with Turkish President Erdogan, and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and PM Hassan Rouhani in on the sidelines of the summit.

Situation in Idlib

Idlib is the only Syrian province still controlled by terrorists. In 2017, a de-escalation zone was established in the region, where militants reluctant to lay down their arms could move together with their families.

According to United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, Idlib presently hosts about 10,000 militants from the Jabhat al-Nusra and Al-Qaeda terror groups. According to earlier reports, terrorists active in Idlib are making preparations for staging a chemical weapons attack that could be blamed on Syria, providing the US-led West with an excuse for another offensive against Syria.
