Turkey to Host Syria Summit with Russia, Iran
Local Editor

Turkey on Thursday said it planned to host in Istanbul a new three-way summit on Syria with the presidents of Russia and Iran aimed at reviving a drive to bring peace to the country.

Rouhani - Putin - Erdogan

In further details, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin agreed to hold the summit in the Turkish capital alongside Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in telephone talks Thursday, a Turkish presidential source reported.

Putin had already hosted a similar summit with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in the Black Sea resort of Sochi in November.

A Turkish official told AFP the date for the Istanbul summit would be fixed later, without giving an indication when this might be.

In its readout of the talks, the Kremlin said Putin and Erdogan "confirmed their commitment to a political settlement" to the Syrian conflict.

"The importance of joint Russia-Turkey-Iran work was emphasized and new contacts at different levels would be discussed" it said, without confirming that a leaders' summit would be held in Istanbul.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov later said a summit had been discussed but no date had been decided.

Erdogan and Putin further discussed the Turkish offensive against Syrian Kurdish militia in their northwestern enclave of Afrin, the Turkish source added.

For their part, some Russian officials expressed concern about the Turkish offensive but analysts believe it would never have gone ahead without at least the tacit assent of Moscow.

The two also agreed to accelerate work to establish new "observation points" in the northwestern province of Idlib to reduce violence, the source added.
