Davutoglu: We will continue to work with Russia to ensure calm on the ground in Syria

After talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Turkey would continue to work with Russia to ensure calm on the ground in Syria.

“We will continue to work with Russia to maintain calm on the ground in order to pass the political process in Syria,” Çavuşoğlu revealed, during a joint press conference with Lavrov, today, Wednesday.
Russia and Turkey cooperate with Iran within the framework of the Astana negotiating platform on Syria, and the two parties have already reached several agreements to ensure a ceasefire between the Syrian government forces and the opposition.
On March 5, 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, reached a package of decisions to prevent tension in Idlib, including declaring a ceasefire in the region, establishing a “safe corridor” in specific areas on the “M4” road, and launching joint patrols.
