Turkish, Syrian FMs to meet in Moscow this Wednesday: Tasnim
Tasnim Agency quoted Turkish news sources as saying that a meeting could be held between the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, and his Syrian counterpart, Faisal Mekdad, in Moscow.
A possibile meeting between the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, and his Syrian counterpart, Faisal Mekdad, could be held in Moscow, in the presence of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the Iranian news agency Tasnim reported, quoting Turkish news sources.
The meeting is expected to take place on Wednesday and will be attended by the UAE Foreign Minister, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, according to Tasnim.
A few days ago, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told TRT that the possibility of holding a meeting between the Turkish and Syrian presidents will be decided following talks between the country's foreign ministers.
Cavusoglu revealed on December 31, after a phone call with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, that Ankara proposed holding a meeting between the foreign ministers of Syria and Turkey in a third country during the second half of next January.
Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said last week that Ankara extended its hand to Damascus, and "we hope that they will not let this hand escape from their hands," as he put it.
On December 15, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he had offered Russian President Vladimir Putin hold a meeting between the three leaders, which will be preceded by a meeting of the heads of the intelligence services, defense, and foreign ministries.
