“Now we are on our own”: Erdogan accused Russia of violating the agreement on Syria

Turkish media report that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Moscow of not complying with the Sochi and Astana agreements on Syria. Ankara’s nervous reaction became known after the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) took control of the city of Maarat al-Numan (Idlib province), which occupies a strategic position, freeing it from terrorists on January 28, 2020.

We expected until now, but from now on we intend to act ourselves. This is not a threat, but the expectation that Russia will send the necessary warning to the regime

- Erdogan told reporters.

At the same time, the Turkish leader, without batting an eye, said that Ankara is running out of patience due to the ongoing attacks by the government’s SAA in the Syrian province of Idlib.

Russia will act differently - either with the regime or with Turkey. Russia tells us that they are fighting terrorists. Who is it? People fighting for their land?

- Erdogan added, protecting the radicals.

After that, Erdogan pointed out the need to give a new impetus to Syrian peace initiatives.

The Astana process is no more. Turkey, Russia, and Iran may consider steps to revive this process

- explained Erdogan.

It must be recalled that the city of Maarat al-Numan was under the control of "opposition" extremists for seven years. An important route passes through it, connecting Damascus with Aleppo. And according to previously reached agreements, the adjacent territory was to become a demilitarized zone, i.e. all the "barmalei" jihadists and "moderate" terrorists were supposed to leave this region. However, the militants built a fortified area there. Therefore, it is not surprising that the CAA conducted an operation to enforce peace.

    And no one believed that Turkey would be an ally of Russia. This is personally Putin Erdogan wrote to friends. Maybe now Putin will understand that centuries-old enemies will never become allies, but will only be scouts.

      Maybe something in the conservatory to fix.

    These are all “gas-oil transit to Europe” questions “that prevent the Russian leadership from objectively considering the anti-Russian incursions of the“ conveniently located “specific“ kings ”and have to endure all their capricious antics ?! what
    The Turkish "sultan" clearly "lost its edge" and "messed up" even when, angered by the violation by the Russian Air Force of its pirate oil trade with ISIS terrorists, he ordered the destruction of the Russian Su-24 in Syria (and the Russian diplomat, too, somehow it was too "timely" and blatantly publicly, shot by a "Turkish extremist-loner" leaked by the watchful guard ??!).
    But then there were big “problems” with gas transit through the post-maid “Ukraine” and with the “South Stream” Bulgaria, which got into trouble, and therefore the Kremlin had to confine itself to a “ban on Turkish tomatoes” and even urgently save an inadequate Erdogan from him, who were “rebelled” by the Americans, who were unhappy fellow citizens ... and now, the usual (for "specific" nationalist political marginalized) "black ingratitude for caring":

    never has this happened again ??!

    request Probably, now, after Erdogan’s "demarche" regarding "outrageously offended (by the legal authorities of Syria, with the help of Russia liberating the territory of their country from pro-Turkish-pro-American terrorist gangs!)" Turkish accomplices, one should expect new bloody anti-Russian provocations from Turkey ?? !

    He urgently needs to put another S-400. And something else to dump for tangerines .... Then our experts will again write about "just about the collapse of NATO."

      Take it higher - immediately promise and put the S-500, and for the future also subscribe to him to put the S-600, 700, 800, 900, and so on. You can even free.
      Then NATO will get scared and fall apart.

      Turkish border is also guarded by Russian patrols.
      All the sultan's relief, the freed resource can be sent to Libya.

    Again a knife in the back. Is there even a living place on this back? We buy tomatoes, put S-400 on credit, build a nuclear station on credit, built a pipeline at our own expense, and no thanks.
