Putin And Erdogan Agree On Additional Measures To Implement Idlib Agreement

Russian and Turkish presidents, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan © Mikhail Metzel/TASS

On January 23, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the situation in Syria during a meeting in the Russian capital of Moscow.

In a press briefing following the meeting, Putin announced that Moscow and Ankara had agreed to work on additional measures to implement the deconfliction agreement on the northern Syrian governorate of Idlib.

The agreement, which includes the establishment of a demilitarized zone around Idlib, was reached last September during a similar presidential summit. However, it had not been implemented properly and led to the growth in the influence of radical groups in the area.

“Maintaining the ceasefire mechanism should not be at the expense of fighting terrorists that must continue … We see that our Turkish partners are making great efforts to eliminate the terrorist threat there and it is necessary to work together to remove tension in that region,” the RT TV quoted Putin as saying.

The Russian President also described the decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria as a “a positive step,” saying it will help stabilize the situation in the war-torn country.

“If such steps will indeed be taken, it will be a positive change. It will help stabilize the situation in this troubled region of the Syrian state, which is currently under control of Kurdish forces”, Putin said, according to Sputnik.

Putin went on to reaffirm Moscow’s support of the negotiations between the Damascus government and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which control northeastern Syria.

“Such dialogue will help consolidation of the Syrian society and the national reconciliation,” Putin said. “It will be beneficial not only to Syria but its neighbors,” the Russian President added.

From his side, Erdogan warned that the withdraw of U.S. troops can be abused by terror groups. He also revealed that Washington had given positive signals regarding the plan to establish a safe zone in northeastern Syria and noted that “there is no problem between us [Turkey] and Russia” on this.

“It is of critical importance that a power vacuum that can be abused by terror groups does not emerge during the process of the U.S. withdrawal,” Erdogan said.

Regarding Idlib, the Turkish President stressed that Ankara and Moscow will continue their fight against terrorist groups in the governorate.

“I have stated that our only aim is our duty to clear [the region] of terror organizations such as the PYD [Democratic Union Party] and the YPG [People’s Protection units], and especially of Daesh [ISIS],” Erdogan added.

This meeting will be followed by a trilateral summit between Moscow, Ankara and Tehran. The exact date of this summit, which will also be focused on Syria, is yet to be revealed.

    Russia is putting it’s soldiers at risk if they let the situation in Idlib continue, I know the Turkstream is a big and profitable project but King roach can’t be trusted and he won’t hesitate to take shots at Russia.

    • Sinbad2

      It’s more about NordStream, Russia is happy to see Iran build a gas pipeline to Europe.
      The Europeans waffle on about supply diversity, but they assist the USA to prevent Iranian gas reaching Europe.
      An outsider would think that the EU bureaucrats are actually working for Russia, against the EU.

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        Looks more like they are working for the USA to me !

        If they are not allowed to deal with Iran and not allowed to deal with Russia because thats what the USA wants …Trump wouldnt mind Europe buys the U.S LNG GAS .

        Bloomberg 9 August 2018 :

        “The European Union is ready to facilitate more imports of liquefied natural gas from the U.S. and this is already the case as we speak,” Juncker said in a statement on Thursday. “The growing exports of U.S. liquefied natural gas, if priced competitively, could play an increasing and strategic role in EU gas supply.”

        • jm74

          Tend to agree with your statement; Russia should give the EU a miss and concentrate on Africa and Asia, she should also tell NATO to back off and retreat back to western Europe otherwise Russia will be forced into taking military action.
          Europeans don’t want a war with Russia, especially one that involves the military.

          • KGBDonald

            No one even ask Europeans, their ‘leaders’ are pathetic, spineless EUnuchs (few exceptions like Orban). When Washington DC orders: “Jump!” Eurovassals ask: “how high?”.

          • Jens Holm

            We are not spineless. We prefare kinds of joinings in a more peacefull way and tractors for guns.

            You are still guns and by that most parts of the russians are very poor. You have learned nothing.

            Even the pensioners are reduced in money. Strange kind of progress. We prefare ours, and do You not need us, we will spineloss be with others.

            Hard to see EU as jumper for USA. We are different, but You are not even allowed to see that through Your systematic war propaganda.

            Hard to see Eastern REuropenas all the to Berlin should join a collapsed Communist Economy showing no learning.

            Those off course has the right to look for something better. We see very mixted results partly because they live in ruins of Comecon as well as they still have the same kind of leaders, which partly ar e the same kind of unproductive corrupters and mafiosas as in Russia. Those should join Russia and we/they could get in normal very poor russians in.

            Wew didnt want Tzars, We didnt want Bolsjevics and we ceratinly dont want Putin as a well camouflaged Tzar and oligark of the greatest again. NO WAY.

            Russia as the only one even lost WW1 3 times and learned nothing.

          • jm74

            You may not have noticed but Russia gave them up in 1991, so why would they want a run down ex-soviet territory back.

          • Jens Holm

            USSR didnt give them up. They collapsed and try to regain good old days still having not chabged into better economical systems as well as they dont understand, that they are not the best in the world to decide for independent neighbors.

            Many examples about that fx Russians dont understand those regained countries after being taken over at least twice not see Russians as winners and fathers of WW2 at all.

            The big problem was Russia did not change and by that even was plundered. They should have made chnages at least 10 Years before Gorbatjof. Then they at least have had a structure, which could implemnt needed changes.

            In stead they let old men of WW2 run Russia as it used to be. By that they might have kept at least better relations to the many countries, they have taken hard into them.

            We see bad parts of the bad is remain.

            I saw my first Russians in Berling in 1968. hey were much worse then american tourist and had nothing to have it in at all.

          • Concrete Mike

            You know Russia will never threat Europe with war as much as the warmongering deep state would love to hear that from Russia !

            Russia wants to trade with Europe not attack it.

          • Sinbad2

            Exactly, the Europeans have a long history of aggression towards Russia and other countries.
            Russia wants peace and trade, but FUKUS covets Russia.

          • jm74

            That is exactly how I see it otherwise the USSR would still be in existence.

          • Sinbad2

            You are missing the grand plan, if the US tries to force Germany to pay American prices for gas, it would destroy the German economy, and the EU.
            So Russia sits back and watches the resentment towards the US grow.
            One fine day Germany will simply dump the USA and align with Russia.
            That would be checkmate for the FUKUS regimes.

            And the way Trump is pushing the Germans, the day Germany regains its freedom could be quite soon.

          • Jens Holm

            Your socalled plan is out of context. EU is working very hard having succes as well by producíng electricity by wind and solar power.

            We also do a lot to use much less electricity and have succes with that too.

            USA also is divided in that. Many states dont do, what Trump and many Republicans in Washinton prefare. They invest in cheeper and more clean alternatives as well as it goes.

            Its very big investments, but as many others its a little by a little, where the price is the best too.

            Of course we will need a lot of oil and gas in the future too, but bigger parts are replaced, so we almost only need it as plastic and like that.

          • Sinbad2

            So why buy Russian gas?
            Nobody forces the EU to buy Russian gas, it’s a free market, that’s what the US is trying to stamp out, America hates a free market.

          • jm74

            Good enough theory Sinbad2 but it is only a theory. Germany has been submissive to the US for the last 70 odd years. They and a number of other Europeans lack the ability to retain their sovereignty. How often have you heard about an abused housewife that defends her husband? Not uncommon and it can be related to the EU.

          • Sinbad2

            Yes I agree about being submissive. Using your abused housewife analogy, the wife will leave, if their is another man.

          • jm74

            Very logical conclusion….they eventually will leave but not before they are bruised and battered, physically and psychologically.

        • Jens Holm

          That was meant as a help, if Russains should block mainly Ukraine. Thanks for that part of it.

        Iranian gas through where…to get to Europe?
        And how do you think that US would accept that with their sanctions on Iran and all ?!

        “EU bureaucrats are actually working” for Germany to cater to the needs of the German industry… they always did and they always will .
        Whoever thinks that Germany will give up on Russian gas haven’t got CLUE!
        Just ask Junker if you don’t believe me.

        • Jens Holm

          Its easy to understand. All would like that production and export, so there are many pipeline pibeline plans and some of them siooner or later will come through.

          USA dont decide if Europe should have gas and oil or not. So far we need a lot of that.

          By that we give santions but smaller which dont hit as hard as the USAs do. The last small one was by Danish initiative because Iranians thougt they could come here with their secret police and murder Iranian opposition. We have court systems for that. And we dont want Iranians as spyes here to.

          Our other card is to produce electricity for heating as well by windmills and solar panels. We also work hard develloping all kinds of electric equipment needing less electricity and do have succes. And we do sell a lot of it as export to the whole world for billions.

        • Sinbad2

          Well the Americans think they can make Germany pay nearly twice the price for American(Qatar/Iran) gas.
          The US does not produce enough gas to supply Europe, but they can steal gas from other countries and sell it to the EU.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            The US produces the most oil in the world

          • Sinbad2

          • Jens Holm

            Thats right, they burn a lot. Saudis and others do too. What a waste.

          • Jens Holm

            For the moment it as for Ukraine is meant as a safety buffer.

          • Sinbad2

            That’s still Russian gas, are you sure you live in Europe?

          • Jens Holm

            The import from USA and storing gas in Ukraine is American gas meant for if Russia stop sending gas.

            And You actually ignore some of the gas is not russian at all and just taken as hostage.

            http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/guides/456900/456974/html/nn4page1.stm

          • Sinbad2

            Your link says nothing about other sources of gas.
            It merely states that Russia wants Ukraine to pay for its gas, and Ukraine is angry at having to pay the same price as other countries.

            But if as you claim Russia is stealing gas from Ukraine, then surely the Ukrainians would not want to buy Russian gas.

          • jako

            Exactly “Americans think” but realistically Germany can’t pay that price because with higher prices of energy their industrial products will not be competitive on the world market.

            Exactly “US does not produce enough gas” and even if price is right only that fact is enough for Germany not to see alternative in for decades reliable cheap Russian gas
            Americans are in denial on obvious facts, the best sign of full decadence

            I just did
            There is no single word that mentions Europe.
            Mediterranean sea is huge obstacle that explains why Israel, Cyprus,Greece and EU + all the energy corporations drag their feet to invest in their project despite “GREEN light” from EU…
            The sea is too deep and apart from being extremely expensive project, seabed between Greece and Cyprus is volcanic and tectonically active.
            So even if it works that pipeline will be extremely expensive and gas NOT competitive with Russian gas..
            So maybe you should also “read the news” huh?
            For your information also Iraq, Jordan and Syria need gas, they always did (which many people don’t know)

          • Sinbad2

            “There is no single word that mentions Europe.”

            “Tehran also aims to extend the pipeline to Lebanon and the Mediterranean to supply gas to Europe, they said.”(Wall Street Journal)

            Try reading it again.

          • jako

            OK sorry my bad I was really quick…
            Anyways I have nothing to add on all I have said on that subject
            This ” Lebanon” pipeline to EU is just another pipe dream.

            Israel+Cyprus+Greece is already approved green lighted by EU commission yet NOBODY is in hurry to invest in project (including EU)
            I have said already why…

            Remember years ago “Caspian sea gas” from Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan that NOBODY talks about any longer?!
            They were shouting even more that Russian gas in EU will be squeezed out yet after all those years there will be only small supply of Azeri gas to Turkey and Italy as result of all that screaming and promises.
            I don’t buy that Western PROPAGANDA any more
            Just their hate against Russia makes them imagine things!

          • Sinbad2

            ‘EU + all the energy corporations drag their feet”
            They drag their feet because Israel is trying to sell them Lebanese gas, and the fields have not been proven.

          • jako

            Are you saying that :Lebanon, Israel, Cyprus and Greece gas fields findings are ALL ” not been proven” ?!
            Not to my knowledge.

            Again from what I was reading the major obstacle is not the absence of assured gas at all but huge PRICE of the investment and even incertitude that they are not going to have big problems in the realization of such project (volcanic and tectonic instability)

          Iranian media is now reporting that Israel has severely hurt Iran in Syria and most Iranians want out of the mess and Russia has sold Syria down the tubes:

          The truth is that there is a reason behind the Israeli haughtiness:
          Soleimani has been putting on a fake show for his bosses in Tehran, and
          the Iranian people in general. He keeps his military losses under wraps,
          enlarges the achievements and tries to create an imaginary picture of
          victory. Israel’s public announcements throw cold water on his attempts.
          Meanwhile, Israel is tensely following the internal debates within
          Iran, between President Hassan Rouhani’s supporters (who would love to
          wrap up all their Iranian interests in Syria and come home), and
          Soleimani, who continues to drag Iranian spiritual leader Khamenei
          toward “exporting the revolution.” Israel extracts a high price from him
          at every step, and runs to tell everyone else. And that’s the story.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Well, like I have said on many occasions, and even the right-wing western media is now confused at Putin’s totally idiotic and spineless policies in Syria. Instead of putting Syria together and creating a strong central government, Russia is cutting localized deals with terrorists, playing second fiddle to the Islamist thug Erdogan’s annexation of large chunks of northern Syria and collaborating with Zionist destruction of Syria infrastructure. It is only a matter of time that emboldened Turkeys would attack Russian idiots again.

      • Alex

        Yes, instead of picking fight with everyone and becoming a most hated country in the world like US, Russia is actually thinking long-term, creating acceptable circumstances for all parties in the region by making agreements. There were deconfliction zones all over Syria a few years ago. Where are they now? That’s right, under Syrian gvmnt. control. Kurds aren’t going anywhere aswell, they are landlocked by several countries that do not want to see US there, they can’t do business on their own, their land gains are pretty much useless, local population hates them thus their desparate cryout to the Syrian govmnt. of accepting them as a federal state, IMHO. Kurds remind me of thief that has went into the vault to steal they money but got locked inside. Turkey won’t be attacking Russia any time soon, they have tried and learned that it would cost them too much in terms of economics, secondly, they have many common profitable projects with Russia that will be good for Turkey in the long run, instead of just pillage and run, lol.

He is a front man for Jew Oligarchs. It is good chance that Russia will go the same way as USSR, the Chinese are already taking over Siberia and the far east and the Turks who have historical ties with Ukraine will help in the carve of Southern Russia. It is no coincidence that Porchenko came to Constantinople to break up the Orthodox church with Erdogan grinning next to him.

      Turkey was a solid rock, because USSR was there. Its easier for them to be themselves even I dont like how they are at all.

      I dont see China as any winner in that. They have treated their own population as bad as any could during 1000s of Years. Its very good if they reach levels and the people there has not the lowest standards in the world.

      Its not against USA as I see it. They make the cake to share bigger for all. Fine with me.

      Besides that China son will have extra expensies and we might even see it now. As long as all things are new, You dont have to “paint” and repair. Now China is not new anymore and have to paint and repair. By that their growth will slow down some.

      We also are not as kind as we were, because they try to sell us very cheep products made in artificial low prices. We will try to change that in different ways. My economy alos would be better if I paid no tax and like that.

      • Sinbad2

        “Turkey was a solid rock, because USSR was there.”
        Yes the USSR was there, and now Russia is there.

        Do you fear Germany, they are there?
        This constant meme that Russia is a threat, when it’s NATO that is the aggressor.
        The US and it’s EU minions invade a country every 2 years on average, yet somehow it’s the Russians that are the threat?

        You know there are billions of people who have been oppressed enslaved and murdered by Europeans, so I guess I understand your fear that they might seek to punish you for your crimes.
        But you fear Russia, they have only been subjected to European economic attack, you are looking in the wrong direction, it will, it is the people of Africa who are coming for some payback.
        They won’t come in tanks, they will walk to your door, kill you, take your women, and move into your house.

    Erdogon only talked to clear terriost of YPG/PYD and deash. but he don’t talked about AlQaeda and HTS in idlib It means he is suppoting HTS and collaborating with them to swallow idlib territory.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Erdogan refers to terrorist in Idlib to PYD and not mentioning HTS.Putin only emphasized on peace implementation in Idlib not elimination of HTS.Putin again is happy that Erdogan has implemented deconfliction fully.Which is directly in contrast with Erdogans integration of Algaida=HTS in Turkey terror alliance.If Syria refuses Turkey through Syria then Erdogan will unleash HTS against Syria.That is why Erdogan fights for buffer zone and moving Kurdish from original border zone.USA wanted to create separate zone for Kurdish in Deir azor but fail because of Syrian pressure.

  • Bla bla bla. Putin is an idiot.
    He tries to treat Erdogan well, but it is Erdogan who enjoys genocide of Christianity in Idlib.
    It was Erdogan who shot down the first Russian jet over Syria and it was Erdogan’s Turkmens who shot dead the pilot on the parachute.
    I don’t know why SF repeats all the time this stupid propaganda. about good Putin -Erdogan relations.
    Turkey is fucking enemy of Syria and Russia, it is on the same level as USA and Israel. And Turkish proxies are on the same level as ISIS.
    What Turkey does in Idlib is regular war crime. But Putin tolerates it, you know, money, Bosphorus, gas pipes…. in one word fucking geopolitics counts more then some ‘human rights’ and ‘justice’.
    Frankly, I don’t know, who is worse, Putin or US neocons. their moral grounds are perfectly the same.

    AND SF – don’t forget to ban my third account and 3rd IP adress for speaking the truth.
    I have plenty of them, hundreds or even more. I’ll return because I’m telling the truth and I’m your Nemesis.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      you are just a poster telling your opinion so stop flattering your self as you no ones nemesis kid. If they ban you and you still insist to be here that means you also have no self respect, or no where else to go.

    Actually Putin told Erdogan ( more or less diplomatic) that he got a big 0 and must over do his homework, or he was no more allowed to play with the big boys. Putin knows Erdogan is cheating, losing momentum and can not, and even do not want to deliver on his promisses to Russia. Putin will never let this lunatic overtake the Madhouse region (syria, Turkey until Saoudi an Iran Pakistan)

  • Sinbad2

    Turkey Russia and China have a lot of gold and Whoever has the gold, makes the rules.

  • Barba_Papa

    In other words, Erdogan refuses to give up control over Idlib, even now that Al Nusra runs the show there. And Putin still feels like he needs Erdogan way more then let Syria regain control of the province. So the status quo remains as is. Expect the Tigers soon to pack up and reappear at another hotspot when needed.

    I doubt that the US withdrawal will happen prior to Russia and the Syrian government coalition stopping the Israeli air and possibly surface launched strikes on Syria. Russia is supporting the evil Jew’s Yinon plan, including the US occupation, by allowing these strikes to continue after it put the means in place to stop them.
