Russia, Turkey reach ‘understanding’ over cooperation in Syria

Russian and Turkeish foreign ministers and senior officials have agreed to continue coordination in Syria, Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said on Saturday.

The move came several days after the US President Donald Trump decreed to fully withdraw his country’s troops from Syria.

Cavusoglu’s remarks followed a meeting between senior officials of the two countries in Moscow to discuss the situation in Syria after Trump’s decision.

“Ankara and Moscow share the opinion that it is necessary to destroy all terrorist organisations in Syria,” Anadolu Agency cited Cavusoglu. “We will continue close cooperation with Russia and Iran on Syria and regional issues,” he added.

Cavusoglu highlighted that Turkey and Russia also discussed issues related to terrorism. “We confirmed our readiness and determination to continue the fight in order to liberate Syria from this scourge,” Russian news agency TASS reported.
