(Worthy News) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on October 22 will hold discussions with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, on developments in northeastern Syria, where Turkey has launched an offensive against Kurdish forces.
A five-day Washington-brokered cease-fire expires the same day in the area where Turkey is trying to establish a 120-kilometer “safe zone” near its border with the conflict-ravaged country and where it wants to resettle some 2 million war refugees it is harboring.
Turkey will take “necessary” further steps in northeastern Syria after meeting with Putin, Erdogan said at a forum in Istanbul on October 21 hosted by broadcaster TRT World as cited by AP. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]
