Turkey, Russia, France, Germany To Discuss Syria War in Istanbul



Turkey, Russia, France and Germany intend to hold a meeting on Syria in Istanbul, Turkish President Erdogan told reporters upon his return from New York. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan participated in the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) which was attended by world leaders.

“We will hold a four-party summit in Istanbul, which will involve Turkey, Russia, Germany and France. Initial talks on this issue have already taken place, now a date needs to be fixed,” Erdogan said, as cited by the Haberturk TV channel.

The Turkish President stated that he had “thoroughly discussed the Syria issue with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov” on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

When speaking about possibilities for solving the situation in Syria’s Idlib province based on the agreements between Turkey and Russia, Erdogan said that the situation was advancing in as per the agreements.

“Around 60,000 people have returned to their homes in the Idlib province, and it is a very good thing. I hope it will continue this way. If our joint efforts with Russia prove successful, then we will be able to start a reconstruction process in Syria,” he added.

As for a possible offensive on Idlib, which Ankara considers to be unacceptable, Erdogan remarked that “Vladimir Putin has made some assurances in this regard.” According to President Erdogan, it is not safe to say that there will be no offensive but “there are no such plans at the moment.”

Erdogan also said that he placed “particular stress on the removal of heavy weapons belonging to radical groups” from Idlib. He said that “the heaviest burden is being carried by Turkish intelligence agencies” but “the work is going well.”.
