Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday Turkey will deploy troops in Syria’s northern Idlib region as part of a so-called de-escalation agreement brokered by Russia last month.
The meeting to be held on August 9 that is very important in terms of the interests of the two countries, is a start, but also the beginning of a very challenging struggle. After this stage, the healing of relationships to try to prevent the American forces of the struggle will be the beginning. When it is brought to the best level of relations as in the case of Serbia, the CIA got caught in its relationships with the underground work. Turkey – Russia relations prepared for these obstacles and move forward to the end of the case you need to be careful.
Despite fierce opposition from NATO ally Turkey, U.S. President Donald Trump has approved supplying arms to Kurdish YPG fighters to support an operation to retake the Syrian city of Raqqa from Islamic State, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.
The Americans are now trying to extinguish the conflict, as fighting between Kurds and Turks, may hinder the implementation of the plans associated with preparing a direct assault on Raqqa. Through a network of military bases deployed South of Kobani and Qamishli, the U.S. continues to drive to Raqqa various military and civil engineering machinery (like SOF and 75th regiment of the Rangers, and for SDF/YPG), but the previously announced time frame of the assault of Raqqa already obviously moved because of the profound losses in the fighting on the southern Bank of the Euphrates, and the lack of heavy equipment, as well as the protracted siege of Tabqa.
The Turkish president has urged Russia to stop backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, just more than a day after Turkey’s American allies launched scores of missiles in what they have called a retaliatory strike after a suspected chemical weapon attack in Syria’s Idlib province killed dozens.
“We hope that Russia gets involved as well — that at least they stop defending Assad,” Anadolu Agency quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying.
Turkey has been hoping for a war of regime change against Syria virtually since the civil war in that nation began, and on the eve of US attacks against Syria overnight, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told interviewers he would “welcome” a US attack on Syria.
The story with chemical attack develops quite traditional and expected. After stuffing, the militants and the West rushed to accuse “bloody Assad regime” and called the UN security Council, launched a campaign in the press, and trump even said that he changed his attitude to Assad, simultaneously kicking Obama for a prior policy and recommending Russia to change its attitude toward Assad. Russia of course denies everything, in the UN security Council prospects for any anti-Syrian resolution in the objective investigation as nobody is interested, so that the subject “chemical weapons” will be traditionally another element of the information war.
The result is a funny picture, when the Germans and the Turks accuse each other of fascism, as reflected in the cartoon.

Alexander Dugin, whose bushy beard gives him a passing resemblance to the Siberian mystic who bewitched the last czar’s family, says he played a key but largely clandestine role in patching up Russia’s relations with Turkey, an account confirmed by a senior figure in Ankara. And with people he calls ideological allies now in the White House, Dugin says he’s bullish on better ties with the U.S., too.
Beirut: Four documents were signed in Ankara last week by Russian and Turkish officers, facilitating a Syrian ceasefire deal that went into effect on December 30.
The documents are the product of four weeks of intensive secret talks held under auspices of the Turkish government, outlining a political roadmap for the Syrian crisis, tailor-made to fit the liking of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus made clear in one of his statements that his country may change its policy in relation to Syria and depart from the course held by Ankara since 2011, when it supported the interventions of the anti-government forces against President Bashar al-Assad. “We have no right to impose any solution of the Syrian people”, – said the Deputy head of the Turkish government.
Turkey will soon meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to join forces against jihadists in Syria, the leader of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has claimed, describing the government’s five years of fruitless attempts to topple al-Assad as the worst defeat in the country’s foreign policy history.
“They give support to terrorist groups including Daesh (ISIS),” Erdogan said.
“We have confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos,” he added.
The organizer will pay a huge price for this assassination. Our strongest and loudest response to this crime will be the continuation of the Russian-Turkish strategic alliance, and the acceleration of the Turkish withdrawal from NATO, and creating a new Eurasian alliance. That is the only reasonable and symmetric answer, because our enemies – the globalists – fear this moment more then anything else. Nothing will stop our progress in the creation of a multipolar and democratic world order.
Syrian sources reasonably suggest that the murder of the Russian Ambassador in Ankara, may be the result of problems with the withdrawal of foreign military advisers from Aleppo who are still hiding in the city and in this case, and suggest that the murder of Charles can be found among the secret services of the citizens of those States, military advisers which are still in Aleppo.
So a regular zealot with his “Allah Akbar”, but behind him is some kind of intelligence Agency, which used him to achieve more far-reaching goals. That it could be MIT is not particularly hard to believe, because while there are benefits from this murder for Erdogan, the cost is very serious – if he wanted to annoy Russia, he could simply give the go-ahead to the FSA militants to come to the rescue of Aleppo, but not stupidly kill the Ambassador, which in no way will strategically improve the position in Northern Syria. Although we can not exclude that this came from the cadres in the MIT and the interior Ministry that remained after the aborted coup. The young officer was a fanatic, the perfect murder weapon, but who has sent this hand (unless it’s an unlikely example of a loner), that is the question. In my opinion the main suspects are Turkoman groups operating in Northern Syria (by the way they are very closely connected with the CIA), and the intelligence service of a foreign state.
In General, we can say that the relationship of Turkey with the activities of the Russian military coalition in Syria is quite obvious, and while Erdogan is fulfilling its obligations (that he was not talking in public), he will continue to be our companion in the Syrian war. However, given the changeable nature of Erdogan and the vacillation of traditional Turkish foreign policy, the ear with it should be kept open.
After yesterday’s statements by Erdogan about the fact that he came to Syria “to overthrow the tyranny of Assad” and light bewilderment in Moscow in the style of “Recep, what are you?”, he came to his senses and backed out.
