Erdogan Accused Russia of Non-fulfilment Agreements on Syria
OREANDA-NEWS. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that Russia had not fulfilled the terms of agreements on Syria, fixed by the results of meetings in Sochi and Astana.
According to the politician, Turkey is losing patience due to ongoing attacks on the Syrian governorate of Idlib and is ready to retaliate. “We were patient until recently, but now we are going to take action,” Erdogan stated. He added that “this is not a threat” and Ankara expects Moscow to convey “the necessary warning to the regime [Of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. – Ed.].” “We are trying to save the oppressed and injured people. The Russians say: “We are fighting with the terrorists.” Who are the terrorists? Those Syrians who defend their land?” Erdogan said.
