BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told Al-Khaber TV on Thursday that Ankara and Moscow were in agreement on most issues regarding Syria, except when it comes to the future of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

However, while Turkey wants Assad gone, Cavusoglu did say that Ankara is in indirect contact with Damascus.

Cavusoglu’s comments came just hours after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made an important visit to Moscow in order to discuss the situation in Syria’s Idlib Governorate and the potential implementation of a safe zone in the northern part of the country.

No agreement has been made on the Turkish-sponsored safe zone and it does not appear that Russia is interested in establishing such a demilitarized zone along the border of northern Syria.
