Uncomfortable Idlib: Will Russia and Turkey Be Able to Deal with the Syrian Conflicts?


Ankara has declared two days ago  that Russia and Iran must stop the entry of Syrian troops into Idlib. According to the Turkish minister for foreign affairs, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, president Bashar Al-Assad’s troops are continuing to enter the border territory.

What is more, Çavuşoğlu said that Turkish troops have begun the deployment of a fourth observation post in the largest region of Idlib, which is now under the control of the Syrian opposition.

President Trump's military has stopped arming its Kurdish partners in Syria — the ones who routed ISIS from its former HQs in Raqqa. The president called the aid "nonsense [that] should have ended a long time ago," the Associated Press reported this weekend, quoting Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. The decision was announced after a Friday phone chat between Trump and Turkish President Recep Erdogan.
