Turkish and Russian presidents discuss northeast Syria

Donald Trump Syria Tayyip Erdogan US US Turkey talks Erdogan Donald Trump meeting Syria Kurdish miltia world news indian express

Moscow has brokered a shaky truce in northern Syria, but sporadic clashes have continued.

A few deals under the Russian mediation have been reached since October 9, which led to the halt of the fights in some areas and the entry of Syrian troops to Kurdish-held areas on the Syrian-Turkish border.

Turkey and Russian Federation reached a deal under which YPG/PKK terrorists would pull back 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) south of Turkey's border with Syria and security forces from Turkey and Russian Federation would conduct joint patrols there.

Syrian state TV said one of its cameramen was wounded in the fighting, while the Observatory said several were wounded, including a paramedic.

SANA said Saturday's clashes included heavy machine gun fire and occurred in the village of Um Shaifa near the town of Ras al-Ayn.

That changed following a series of IS attacks within Turkey, and Ankara joined the US-led anti-IS coalition in 2015.

I have no doubts. "But I'm not going to take the bus to Anfield on Sunday thinking I'm going to lose the game". You see the team, what is the weak point? Right now they are one of the strongest teams in the world.

The Free Burma Rangers, a humanitarian group active in northeast Syria, said four Syrian army soldiers were killed and seven were wounded, including a general. The patrols are aimed at allowing Turkey to ensure that Syrian Kurdish fighters have evacuated the border area.

"The Hungarian government appears to perceive Turkey as an emerging, key geopolitical player, not only in Syria but also in southeastern Europe and the broader Middle East", said Daniel Hegedus, an analyst with the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

President Tayyip Erdogan said he will discuss the case of Turkish lender Halkbank with U.S. President Donald Trump during talks in Washington next week, broadcaster NTV and other media reported on Friday. Turkey considers the Kurdish fighters as terrorists due to their links to Kurdish militants fighting inside Turkey.

"To come from tens of thousands of miles away and to say we will put the country's wealth, oil reserves to use is against global law. We vehemently opposed your invite to Mr. Erdogan because his authoritarianism must not be rewarded or dignified with a visit to the White House", Larigakis wrote.

Orban said Thursday that Hungary would be able to get natural gas from the TurkStream pipeline-which will supply Russian gas to Turkey via the Black Sea-by the end of 2021. "These (reserves) belong to the Syrian people and should be used in a way that benefits the people of Syria".
