Russia asks Turkey to stop helping terrorists in Syria

Februari 21, 2020
The Russian government is  urging  Turkey to stop supporting and providing assistance to terrorist groups in Syria . Until now, the war in Syria is still raging and there has been no ceasefire.

"We urge Turkey to avoid incidents in order to stop giving aid to terrorist groups and surrender their weapons," the Russian Defense Ministry said, quoting AFP on Thursday (20/2).

The war is still going on in Syria, especially in the Aleppo and Idlib regions. In both regions, the sound of rifles and explosions could be heard endlessly. At least 900 thousand people were displaced by the war.

The war in Syria itself involved Russia, Iran and Turkey. Russia and Iran support the government of President Bashar Al Assad.

Turkey helps the Assad counter group. America and several European and Arab countries are also among them.

United States President Donald Trump has asked Russia not to support the Bashar Al Assad regime. Trump has said that to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"Expressing concern about the violence in Idlib, Syria and expressing the US desire to urge Russia to end support for the atrocities of the Assad regime," the White House said on Sunday.

The United Nations has been asked by a number of parties to intervene to resolve the conflict in Syria that never stops. So far, Russia and Turkey are at the forefront of negotiations.

In 2018, Russia and Turkey had agreed to build a demilitarized zone in the Idlib region. However, war continues in the region.

Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar Al Assad is sure to crush the rebel groups. He claimed to have succeeded in capturing the northern region of Aleppo which was controlled by Turkish troops and Syrian militant masses.

He believes victory was imminent after the war occurred since March 15, 2011. The death toll from the war was estimated at 400 people.
