Russian and Turkish experts involved in talks in Ankara have largely reached a consensus on the Idlib issue, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said on Thursday.

“Talks with a Russian military delegation continue. A consensus has largely been reached,” he said, as cited by the Anadolu news agency.

On March 10, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Turkey would patrol areas north of Syria’s M4 highway and Russia would carry out patrol missions south of it.

Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey agreed at their Moscow talks on March 5 that a ceasefire would be declared in Idlib and a number of other measures would be taken to improve the situation in the Syrian province.

In addition, Russian and Turkish troops will launch joint patrols along the M4 highway, where a security corridor will be created. Besides, Moscow and Ankara reaffirmed their commitment to preserving Syria’s sovereignty and agreed to continue a determined fight against terrorism.

What’s the matter with Putin? Shall we call him Mr. Appeasement? Does he not remember Chamberlain in WWII? No good will come of this. Not for the Syrian people. Erdogan REFUSES to admit his “friends” are international terrorists. And what’s with the Russians helping to “protect” a new Turkish convoy of troops and artillery? Delivering the Turks to Idlib, no less! How is Erdogan going to rid N. of M4 the Chinese Uyghurs? MORE Turkish observation posts being built next to Al Qaeda camps. What’s wrong with this picture??? Assad just won the war! Now, with this appeasement/ceasefire, the invaders/losers… Read more »

Don’t you get this stuff is ruining Turkey’s relations with USA, EU and NATO?
Note that Erdolf is already getting on the nerves of all old time Turkey’s partners and allies.
Do not assume that despite MSM don’t talk about it, the west ignores what the two bits sultan is doing, same for Russia…
Now question yourself : how to deal with it while aviding putting the whole MENA and east Mediterranean area on fire?
Same issue with Iran which, like Turkey, is pretty large and highly populated (over 80 millions). It makes matters more complicated than e.g. having to deal with Saddam.

Actually something must end being lost in translation with the Turks : when the Russian speaks about killing terrorists, AKP shitlamists understand “kill the Kurds, kill the Armenians, kill the Jews and kill all the kafir (infidels). The problem with the religious fanatics it’s they’re just like schizos : they have a bogus perception of reality. Ceasefire means “reload”. Peace Treaty are deceptions to be used to attack while the other side is led to believe to peace : just think about the Hudaibyah fake peace treaty. Therefore, just don’t believe what comes from AKP/Muslim Brotherhood : they are liars!… Read more »

Mila3030 has pointed out very important. The ceasefire agreement is just in benefit of Turkey and terrorists, thanks to Putin.
