Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan discussed the latest developments in Idlib and measures to reduce tension in the area in Syria during a phone call with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on May 13.

The Turkish president told Putin that the Syrian government “sought to sabotage Turkish-Russian cooperation” in Idlib by violating the ceasefire.

Erdoğan voiced concern over ceasefire violations in the past two weeks by forces of the Bashar al-Assad regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone, Turkey’s Presidential Communications Director Fahrettin Altun said on Twitter.

Erdoğan also noted that targeting civilians, schools and hospitals could not be considered fighting against terrorism.

He stressed that the Assad regime aimed to sabotage Turkish-Russian cooperation in Idlib and to harm the spirit of the Astana agreement, noting that rising tensions in the region would jeopardize the formation of a Constitutional Committee in Syria and the political process. ... one-143397

Only Putin is smart enough to punk Erdogan. I bet not one of those S400s will work right for Turkey when they need them to in combat. Putin will let Syria do whatever he wants them to do. Syria is Russia's long standing Ally not Turkey. Putin wants Russian control over Turkey again and they will change the capital back to Constantinople.
