Erdogan: Turkish military to be positioned in Idlib

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey's Armed Forces would be positioned within Syria's Idlib.

He noted that a tripartite mechanism between Turkey, Russia and Iran had been discussed.

“President Putin was recently in Turkey. We discussed how we could make a tripartite mechanism work. We have a roadmap regarding this issue. In the upcoming days, the relevant departments will take the necessary steps. A division of duties has been made regarding the de-escalation zones. Steps will be taken to ensure the safety and security of the residents,” Erdogan said on his return flight from a one-day trip to Iran.

"The same steps that we took in Jarabulus and Rai that ensured 100,000 people could return will be taken in Idlib. Turkey's Armed Forces will be positioned within the borders of Idlib, and the Russian armed forces will be positioned outside its borders,” Yeni Safak cited the President as saying.
