The delegates are expected to come to the Turkish capital on Tuesday. Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said they will discuss joint patrols in Syria’s restive Idlib region, starting Sunday.

A Russian military delegation will travel to Ankara this week to pressure Turkey into respecting Syria’s sovereignty, Col. Gen. Leonid Ivashov revealed on Monday.

“The Russian military has a clear goal of guaranteeing Syria’s sovereignty and demanding that Turkey respect it unconditionally,” Ivashov said.

He said the delegation will take a tough line in the negotiations with the Turkish military. Russia and Turkey used to be partners in political talks on Syria but never evolved into military allies, he noted.

The military talks follow a summit in Moscow last week between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Tayyip Erdogan. It led to a ceasefire in Idlib and an agreement to jointly patrol a major Syrian highway running along the border with Turkey.

The only way to force Turkey into respecting Syria’s sovereignty is exterminating its proxies in Syria. I disagree with the UNSC saying there is no military solution since Turkey disrespect this with its undercover war.
Russia should launch a massive air campaign, using about 300 jet fighters over 2-3 days on the roaches : this would demolish 90-95% of their combat potential.
The carrot and the stick method doesn’t works with cockroaches. You need to do serious pest control when you face a cockroach infestation.

What is Russia talking about ? Trukey to be respectful of Syria sovereignty ? … Not way my Russian friends, that will never happen. Turkey will continue sending weapons to its terrorists and will continue increasing the number of its soldiers and weapons in Syria land.
