Ankara fails to coordinate Syrian Operation with Russia and Iran
Turkey did not provide any assurances that its military operation in Syria would be coordinated with Russia and Iran, Syrian President Bashar Assad's adviser Bouthaina Shaaban said.
Shaaban told the Lebanese Al Mayadeen channel on Monday that "no guarantees of any coordination between Turkey, Russia and Iran regarding the deployment of Turkish forces in Syria" have been provided.
Shaaban stressed that a common agreement on a Turkish operation was not possible between the three sides to begin with, Sputnik reports.
On August 24, Turkish forces, backed by US-led coalition aircraft, began a military operation dubbed Euphrates Shield to clear the Syrian border town of Jarabulus and the surrounding area of Daesh, outlawed in Russia and many other countries.
