The Sochi memorandum of understanding inked by Russia and Turkey has allowed the Syrian government to have a broader control over the country’s territory, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday at the Mediterranean Dialogues (MED) conference held in Rome.

“I believe that this has considerably stabilized the situation. As a minimum, it helped the legitimate Syrian government to considerably expand control over their own territory,” he said.

On October 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan met in Sochi to agree on a ten-provision memorandum on joint operations to control the situation in northeastern Syria.

Under the agreement, Russian military police and Syrian border guards were deployed to Syrian territories outside the zone of Turkey’s Peace Spring operation.

They are tasked to facilitate the withdrawal of Kurdish units to a distance of 30 kilometers of the Syrian-Turkish border. The first joint patrol mission was conducted east of the Euphrates on November 1.

Putin debe pedir a su amigo Erdogan (patrocinador de terrorismo en Siria) que se retire de Siria y la paz llegaría lo mas pronto posible al sufrido pueblo Sirio.
Mientras rl gobierno Turco siga apoyando a sus mercenarios nunca acabará el terrorismo en Siria.

Nestor, I doubt that they are friends. Russians are just as skeptical as we. Turkey fermented Islamism in Russia too.

Syria has all the legitimacy she needs to assert control from Turkish land thieves. Send some more arms for that. 😛
