On Wednesday, the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet suggested that the meeting of the foreign ministers of Russia, Turkey and Syria will be held next week in Moscow.
Quoting unidentified sources, the newspaper reported that the date for talks in Moscow would fall after the African tour of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, which ends on January 14th. Cavusoglu could travel to Moscow on the same day or head there after his visit to Washington on January 17th.
The sources explained that the upcoming talks will touch on sensitive topics, as the foreign ministers are expected to discuss “the latest developments in Syria, the situation in northern Syria, and the fight against terrorist organizations.” They are also set to discuss the repatriation of refugees.
Last Sunday, Turkish presidential spokesman İbrahim Kalın said in a media interview that Turkey would continue meeting with the Syrian regime to protect Turkey’s interests, as well as the interests and safety of the Syrian people. He said that concrete future steps would determine how this path progresses at a later date.
