  • Erdogan Calls on Putin to End Northern Syria Attacks by Regime Forces

"Iran and Russian Federation should fulfil their responsibility". The reports say that Syrian government forces, supported by Russian Federation were trying to regain control of areas controlled by Daesh and other rebel groups. The regime is advancing inside Idlib. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime". "They should realize their duties as guarantor countries", Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday.

Idlib province is nearly entirely controlled by anti-government forces that are dominated by a jihadist outfit known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) consisting mostly of former fighters from the Al-Nusra Front, an Al Qaeda affiliate.

Russian Federation and Iran have backed Syrian regime while Turkey has supported its foes, but, despite the differences, they struck a deal in 2017 to set up de-escalation zones in Syria, helping reduce fighting.

Ankara and Moscow have many times not been seeing eye to eye on Syrian conflict since they have different interests in the region.

Ankara says YPG fighters are linked to Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) separatists inside Turkey, who have waged an armed campaign since 1984 that has killed more than 40,000 people.

A previous attempt in November to convene talks in Sochi failed due to disagreements between the prospective participants.

Earlier on Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu had warned Russian Federation and Iran they should adhere to the joint accord they signed with Turkey past year in which the three countries announced a "de-escalation zone" in Idlib.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Thursday he should stop Syrian attacks on its opposition in northern Syria if he wants peace negotiations to succeed, Turkish presidential sources said. Iran has its own strategic goals in "finishing off" what remains from the opposition forces in Idlib.
