Turkey Welcomes “Historic” Agreement Between Syria And Russia

ANKARA – Turkish top officials on Tuesday hailed Turkey’s “historic” agreement with Russia over Syria.
The agreement reached during President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s, one-day working visit, to the coastal city of Sochi, Russia, where he met with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to discuss the anti-terror operation led by Turkey in northern Syria.
During the meeting, Turkey and Russia agreed on 10 points.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu shared the details of the agreement on Twitter.
According to the agreement, Ankara and Moscow have agreed to preserve the territorial integrity and political unity of Syria. The two sides also agreed that all YPG / PKK terrorists would be removed from Syrian Tal Rifat and Manbij camps.
“#StrongTurkey under the direction of President @RTErdogan,” wrote Cavusoglu on Twitter.
Thanks to Erdogan’s strong leadership, a “historic” diplomatic success has been achieved, said Turkey’s communications director, Fahrettin Altun, in a message posted on Twitter.
Altun said Turkey would continue to fight terrorism with the cooperation of friendly and allied nations, adding, “This is a great day for civilized nations fighting terrorist groups.”
“The agreement reached today between Turkey and Russia marks the beginning of a new era in our bilateral relations,” he said, adding: “Syria’s territorial integrity and political unity are the key to a stable future in the region.”
“Today’s agreement with Russia is independent of the US-Turkish agreement that all PKK / YPG terrorists must leave the security zone,” he added.
In more than 30 years of terrorist campaign against Turkey, the PKK, which is considered a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, is responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
