According to the Algerian online publication “El-Watan“, the Turkish and Syrian governments have been secretly conducted meetings in Algiers to discuss the federalist government the Kurdish PYD regime was promoting inside northern Syria.
Citing a diplomatic source, El-Watan alleged that Turkey requested to meet with the Syrian government to ease the tensions between the two countries; these meetings have been reportedly facilitated by the Algerian government.
The same source stated that the Algerian government also played a role in easing tensions between Turkey and Russia after the former’s military shot down an SU-24 fighter jet inside the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside in November 2015.
Syrian Foreign Minister, Walid Mu’allem, reportedly met with the Algerian mediators to discuss this topic during his state visit in late March.
