Russia and Turkey are working together on resolving the Syrian crisis

Russia and Turkey are working together constructively on resolving the Syrian crisis, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova

MOSCOW (AVRUPA TIMES)-Russia and Turkey are working together constructively on resolving the Syrian crisis, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova Thursday.

 

Speaking at a weekly briefing, Zakharova said differences between Russia and Turkey on the issue “cannot be solved in a single day because these are significant disagreements, substantial issues.”

 

“Work on this is underway and we value it as positive and constructive,” she added, in the wake of a meeting earlier this month between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, marking rapprochement after a crisis last November.

 

Separately on Twitter, she said, “We’re concerned by ongoing instability in southeastern Turkey,” commenting a recent spate of attacks in that region.
