Moscow and Ankara working on joint coordination centre on Idlib
Russia and Turkey are discussing a "coordination centre" to better manage their operations in Syria's rebel-controlled Idlib province, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said.
The minister said that the two sides are determined to expand cooperation in the area, especially after a new agreement was signed with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu early March.
"This agreement made things more clear and made it easy to patrol the areas. Now, we are working on a joint coordination center with Russia," Anadolu Agency cited Akar as saying.
His remarks came as yesterday Russia hit Idlib in coordination with Turkey, targeting drones and weapons stores of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) jihadists, intended for use in an attack on a major Russian air base near the Mediterranean coast.
