Vladimir Putin and Erdogan agree to meet next week to reduce tension in Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan agreed during a phone call on Friday 28 February on the need for new measures to be put in place to ease tensions and normalize the situation in northwest Syria, the Kremlin said.

They also intend to meet face to face discussing the situation in Syria.

In a readout of the phone call, the Kremlin said Putin and Erdogan agreed to organize a top-level meeting to address the situation in Syria’s Idlib province that the presidents said was a matter of “serious concern”.

The call followed the killing of 33 Turkish soldiers in a strike by Syrian government forces in Syria’s northwestern Idlib region on Thursday.
