BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – Turkey is ready to work together with Russia in Syria’s Idlib province to eradicate militants in the region, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Friday.

According to Cavusoglu, it is also important to make sure that the fight against militants does not threaten the civilians in the region.

Lavrov noted that Moscow and Ankara “are interested in establishing conditions for Syrian citizens’ secure and decent return to their motherland.”

Speaking about the establishment of the Syrian constitutional committee, the Russian diplomat said reports about a disagreement between Russia and Turkey on the issue are false.

Hypocritical and cynical since Turkey is one of the main supporter (helper of USA-Israel-NATO) of terrirists in Syria. Much better for Russia and Syria that Turkey go back home immediately, before Turkey faces death and destruction.

The world rejected you and Iran so you might need to help each other to live in peace. The civilians won’t be under threat if they are given the opportunity to leave the terrorists… Read more »
