Erdogan: Lebanon and Iraq may be invited to Astana process on Syria
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Iraq and Lebanon can be included in the Astana process on the Syrian settlement.
"The next summit will be held in Turkey. During the talks I said that we can include Iraq and Lebanon in the Astana process since both those countries have common borders with Syria and various relationships with the country," Hurriyet Daily cited the Turkish leader as saying.
According to Erdogan, "representatives of the countries’ foreign ministries will jointly work over that issue," and Iraq and Lebanon will be able to make the Astana process even more efficient in case of reaching an agreement on it.
