Turkey Hopes Upcoming 4-Way Summit Will Help Reach Political Solution In Syria

Turkish Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin

On Friday, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said that the 4-way presidential summit, which will be held in Istanbul on Saturday, will focus on finding new ways to reach a political solution in Syria.

“Our main purpose at this summit will be focusing on what kind of new ways could be found based on not military, but a political solution in Syria,” Kalin said during the international congress in the southeastern Turkish province of Diyarbakır, according to the Turkish Daily Sabah newspaper.

Kalin said he hopes that the summit will help speed up the formation of the committee tasked with rewriting Syria’s constitution, which is facing some delays.

“Our chief concrete expectation of this summit is that steps to be taken for a political solution are finalized and a roadmap is determined,” Kalin said.

While Turkey appears to be very optimistic about the results of the upcoming summit, Russia maintains a more realistic stand. Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that it is hard to determine the issues that will be discussed in the summit, but stressed that a political settlement in Syria is a joint goal.

“There are many approaches. In general, everybody wants to see a political settlement in Syria. This is a shared goal, though certain disagreements may exist regarding the instruments and tactics … It is on all these issues that the watches will be synchronized tomorrow,” the Russian news agency TASS quoted Peskov as saying.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, and France’s President Emmanuel Macron will attend the summit, which will be hosted by Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Staffan de Mistura, the U.N. special envoy for Syria, is also expected to deliver a speech during the summit.

Last week, Peskov said that nobody should expect “breakthrough decisions” from the quadrilateral summit because it is not a “breakthroughs.” This means that the four leaders will likely consider this summit a chance to test the waters.

      The sooner Turkey is neutered the better for World Peace. They are the last of the Old Unpunished Ones.

      Turkey has given nothing to the world apart from criminal records,blood,misery and pain.

  • Bigaess Wangmane

    A 4-way summit about a country who’s democratically-elected President isn’t invited to discuss the future of HIS country… right.

  • ColinNZ

    Can you imagine any NATO country allowing similar interference in their national affairs like the uninvited Turkey, KSA, US etc are doing in Syria? The hypocrisy is stunning.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    So again is a submit with out Syrians present and will decide for the future of Syria who exactly the ones who attack Syria and started this whole mess, or Putin is using this to explain to the predators, what is about to happen to them, if they dont back down and go home?

  • Brother Ma

    It galls me to have this Erdogan presiding over a meeting as if he is a real leader. Furthermore ,no one wants a political solution. What we want is Turks,zionatoyanqyis and other foreigners out of Syria NOW. Political solution? Erdogan can try them in his own country and shut up about Syria.
    The Kurds and Alevis are waiting.

    “The use or threat is made for the purpose of advancing a political, religious [F2, racial] or ideological cause.”

    This is a negotiation with terrorist states, doubtful it will enlighten them. They will just go about their tyranny by other means in Syria for now.

  • Gregory Casey

    I don’t suppose it would ever occur to Erdogan, Merkel or the Goldman-Sachs-Elysee-Elf that the President of Syria should attend? If Erdogan thinks he can persuade France & Germany to come around to his way of thinking that he can grab and hold what was formerly a part of the Ottoman Empire in Idlib in NW Syria and North of Aleppo, he will wave his wand at them ……… Putin’s job at this summit is to perforate Erdogan’s Balls. None of the other attendees have any.
