Turkey in Agreement with Moscow over "Military Operations"/invasion in Afrin : Erdogan

Turkey in Agreement with Moscow over "Military Operations"/invasion
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey has reached an agreement with Russia over Ankara’s latest military operation against US-backed Kurdish militants in Northern Syria, vowing that his country would not retreat a step from the ongoing operation.

“We are determined. Afrin will be sorted out. We will take no step back. We spoke about this with our Russian friends. We have an agreement,” Erdogan added, Middle East News reported.

The Turkish leader asserted that Ankara had spoken with other powers, including the US, about the military intervention, but acknowledged that “we couldn't convince the US on some things".

Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim had also said on Sunday Russia does not object to the operation in Syria’s Afrin, saying "We are working to eliminate Iran’s concerns, and Russia does not have objections".

Besides, he added, "Ankara supports communication with Damascus with mediation of Moscow and Tehran."
