Turkish President Erdoğan urges ceasefire in Idlib to avert ’bloodbath’

Jeffrey said the new U.S. approach is more suspicious of Russian Federation amid "growing skepticism" that Moscow is either willing or capable of assisting the USA with its goal of pushing "all Iranian-commanded forces from the entirety of Syria". As photographers took pictures of the three leaders Rouhani, smiling, reached for both of their hands. "President Donald J. Trump has warned that such an attack would be a reckless escalation of an already tragic conflict and would risk the lives of hundreds of thousands of people".

The US adviser for Syria, Jim Jeffrey, on Thursday said there was "lots of evidence" chemical weapons were being prepared by Syrian government forces.

Erdogan argued his country cannot take in any more Syrian refugees and argued that a "rational solution" to the Idlib situation should be reached.

The source said there were assurances to the leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards that the operations would begin within days after Russian Federation began air strikes on the province.

The top Iranian diplomat for Syria policy told Iranian media that Idlib posed a dilemma because it had to be liberated from "terrorists" but the security of millions of civilians had to be protected.

Rouhani raised six leading points in efforts to put an end to the seven-year crisis in Syria and said the global community is duty-bound to counter the Israeli regime's measures, particularly the continuation of its occupation of the Syrian land and its increasing moves against the Arab country's government and nation.

A bloody offensive that creates a massive wave of death and displacement, however, runs counter to their narrative that the situation in Syria is normalising, and could hurt Russia's longer-term efforts to encourage the return of refugees and get western countries to invest in Syria's postwar reconstruction.

"A total and definitive liquidation of the terrorists across all of Syria's territory is necessary", said Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

"The battle for Idlib is going to be the final major battle", said Hilal Khashan, a political science professor at the American University of Beirut, told Reuters before the summit.

For Turkey, the stakes could not be higher.

Rami Abdurrahman, the head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said a series of airstrikes struck a few villages in southwest Idlib and along the borders with the adjacent Hama province, targeting insurgent posts and killing a fighter. Yet the goal remained to have the roughly 2,200 USA troops in Syria exiting sometime this fall. The Syrian government has been repeatedly accused of using chemical weapons in the long conflict. Turkey has accepted 3.5 million refugees from Syria since the start of the war in 2011. "The Turks have shown a great deal of resistance to an attack", he said.

Turkey also doesn't want to see another Kurdish-controlled area rise along its border, as it already faces in northern Iraq. "Iran and Russian Federation are the fighting forces in Syria and have brought blood and tears". While Idlib is expected to top the agenda, the trio are also expected to discuss mechanisms for minimizing the impact of United States financial pressure.
