Turkish president warns Russia against Idlib's operation


(MENAFN) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned his Russian counterpart that Syrian military action in the Idlib region may endanger the Astana peace accords.

Erdogan made the remarks during a phone conversation with Putin held on Saturday in which joint efforts aimed at solving the Syrian crisis were mainly discussed.

"President Erdogan stressed that the targeting of civilians in Dara'a was worrying and said that if the Damascus regime targeted Idlib in the same way the essence of the Astana accord could be completely destroyed," said a Turkish source.

Erdogan also noted that the avoidance of "negative developments" in Idlib was key to encouraging militant groups to take part in a meeting in Astana set for July 30-31.
