A senior Turkish officer has assured the Russian military that the area of Syria’s M4 highway covered by their joint patrol will expand gradually.

“We will gradually expand the route, like we did it together in the area of Qamishli. We started small and gradually increased the length of the route. The main thing for us is to ensure security, that is why we will continue to cooperate. Our main goal is to bring peace to this land, ” Turkish Col. Ukay Sagir Oglu told Russian military police officers after the second patrol.

On Monday, Russia and Turkey conducted the second joint patrol of highway that connects Aleppo and Latakia.

The route was initially shortened for security reasons. The Russian military had previously stated that Turkey pledged to neutralize extremist groups and thereby ensure security of patrols along the entire highway as soon as possible.

Joint patrols along the strategically important M4 highway, which is currently controlled by militants, are conducted pursuant to a memorandum on a ceasefire in Idlib province agreed by the Russian and Turkish presidents during their talks in Moscow on March 5.

The first patrol was conducted on March 15, and was similarly shortened due to provocations by militant groups not controlled by Ankara.

¡FALSO NO VA CUMPLIR…!, La religión que practica Erdogan es de hipocresía y mentira, Rusia debe seguir presionando al gobierno Turco que cumpla con los acuerdos de retirar a sus mercenarios hacia el norte de la carretera M-4.

ROFL. All Turkish proxies are extremists and so is Turkey’s leadership! Erdogan himself said there are no moderate islamists.
