Putin, Erdogan and Iran’s Raisi pledge cooperation against ‘terrorists’ in Syria, france24.com

Russia, Turkey and Iran on Tuesday vowed to continue their cooperation to ”eliminate terrorists” in Syria, in a trilateral statement after their presidents met in Tehran.

The three countries ”reaffirmed the determination to continue their ongoing cooperation in order to ultimately eliminate terrorist individuals, groups, undertakings and entities,” the statement read.

They ”expressed their opposition to the illegal seizure and transfer of oil revenues that should belong to Syria”.

They also ”rejected all attempts to create new realities on the ground under the pretext of combating terrorism, including illegitimate self-rule initiatives, and expressed their determination to stand against separatist agendas” in Syria. […]

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had however told the Turkish leader in a pre-summit meeting that a new Turkish offensive against the Kurds in Syria would be ”detrimental” for the region. He called for the issue to be resolved through dialogue between Ankara, Damascus, Moscow and Tehran.
