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.

Erdo is highly unpredictable, opportunistic and an abominable character.
He knows that he is the only person that can help Assad reclaim Idlib without a bloodbath.
And, he is trying to encash this chip.

El terrorista de la Hermandad Musulmana Erdogan no debe salirse con la suya, ojala Putín no sea manipulado.
Siria tiene todo el derecho de recuperar su territorio y salvar de los terrorista al pueblo Sirio.
