Turkey Summons US Charge d'Affaires over Washington Support to YPG

More than 25 FETO suspects arrested across Turkey

Turkey on Wednesday called on Russian Federation and Iran, the two chief allies of President Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria, to halt an air offensive on the rebel-held Idlib province near the Turkish border.

However, a government offensive helped by Iran-backed militia has gathered pace in Idlib in the last two weeks, according to rebels and a military media unit run by Lebanon's Hezbollah, which is fighting on the Syrian government side.

Recent Idlib offensive of the regime, with support of Russian Federation and Iran, escalated tension between the three countries, which were able to successfully calm down clashes through the Astana process. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime", Cavusoglu said in an interview broadcast on Turkish TV channels.

Turkey protested the Syrian regime's advance into the rebel- stronghold on the grounds that regime troops are targeting moderate opposition in Idlib, arguing that the move undermined prospects of an upcoming meeting in Black Sea resort Sochi on January 29-30, where the regime and opposition groups will seek peaceful solution to the Syrian conflict.

Ankara and Moscow have many times not been seeing eye to eye on Syrian conflict since they have different interests in the region. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime".


Turkey has accused the Syrian government of using the presence of the Nusra Front, which now fights under the banner of the Tahrir al-Sham alliance, as an excuse to attack civilians and moderate opposition groups.

Ankara has already summoned the Russian and Iranian ambassadors, in the biggest public flare-up of tensions with Moscow and Tehran in months.

Cavusoglu said 95 percent of the violations in Idlib were carried out by the regime and the groups backing the regime.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants a personal meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to redress the strained relations of their countries. "We have exerted so many efforts and we can not waste them".

Russian Federation failed to convene the gathering over Turkey's objection about YPG's participation. Turkey also sees the YPG as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and believes it is waging an insurgency against the Turkish state.
