BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The Russian and Turkish forces met in the northern city of ‘Azaz on Sunday to discuss the reopening of the imperative Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway.

According to a military source in Aleppo city, the Russian and Turkish delegations discussed removing all of the rebel checkpoints across the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway in order to allow their forces to begin patrolling the area.

By removing the rebel checkpoints along the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway, the Russian and Turkish forces could start to regulate traffic and preserve the security of the people driving through this roadway.

Furthermore, the Turkish forces met with the opposition forces in northern Aleppo to discuss having them to remove their checkpoints and barriers around the highway.

In turn, the Russian military agreed to remove their mines and checkpoints along the roadway from Aleppo to Tal Rifa’at.

If the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway is reopened, this would be a major boost for the Syrian economy because it will allow residents to once again resume trade and commerce in Turkey.
