As the US is experiencing “certain difficulties” with the pullout from Syria, the process should be coordinated with Iran and Russia to prevent “terrorists” from taking up the vacated space, Turkish Foreign Minister suggested.

“The United States has been facing certain difficulties with the process of the troops’ withdrawal from Syria. We want to coordinate this process with Russia and Iran, with which we had arranged work in the framework of the Astana process,” Turkey’s top diplomat Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday.

Cavusoglu visited Moscow late in December to discuss the situation in Syria. On Wednesday, he mulled bilateral talks between Turkey and Iran, giving no timeframe whatsoever.

At the same time, a tripartite summit in Moscow is being prepared as well, Cavusoglu revealed.

Cavusoglu wants that the Sultan’s foxes help to guard the chicken coop.

But it’s neither Russia’s nor EU’s interests to empower an [agressive] Ottoman Empire v2.0: the Ottomans caused enough troubles to both regions in the past and both won’t get fooled (or let’s hope they won’t)

@Daeshbags-Sux, the Sultan 2.0 already found “afficionados” (Blink) of his war policies in the region. The neighbors may gang up. Look what I have found.
