BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan are meeting in the port-city of Sochi next Monday, the Reuters News Agency reported.
Citing the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Reuters said that Putin and Erdogan would be discussing the current situation in Syria.
In particular, the two leaders are planning to discuss the ongoing situation in the Idlib Governorate, as they failed to reach a consensus during their Tehran meeting.
Erdogan has been pushing Putin to force the Syrian government to withhold their assault on the Idlib Governorate and adhere to an open-ended ceasefire.
Despite his best efforts, Erdogan has failed to convince Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to stop the upcoming attack.
