Erdogan called Putin: details of the conversation between the two presidents on Syria

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s administration informed that the Turkish leader had a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is clarified that during the conversation the heads of state discussed the situation in the Idlib “de-escalation” zone. At the same time, the leaders of the two countries expressed their commitment to all previously reached agreements on Syria.

It is noted that Erdogan said the need to contain the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe in the region. At the same time, Erdogan is sure that the implementation of the Sochi accords should become the foundation of the settlement of the conflict.

In turn, the Kremlin said that during the conversation Putin informed Erdogan about the need for unconditional respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria. Moreover, the Russian leader expressed great concern about the activities of the radicals in the Idlib "de-escalation" zone.

    And who should be responsible for the shelling of our base from Idlib? If Erdogan insists on Sochi agreements so much? And the transfer of MANPADS to barmaley is also provided for in Sochi? It seems that Putin presented Erdogan with little complaints, since he again began to ask for something (airspace)?

    Putin must resist. If Erdogan tramples on, then take all measures to maintain positions. We have weapons that can stop him. We must not forget about the Kurds and their dissatisfaction in the army. A major defeat with heavy losses may end up for him with another, but successful coup .. And such a "friend" is not a pity to lose. The defeat of Assad's army will lead to the defeat of Russia in Syria, which is already extremely dangerous for Putin. Inside, everything is not very successful, but everything was covered by international victories, and if there is a loss, at least run to him.
