Bulgaria: Erdogan and Putin Will Meet in Sochi Today to Discuss the Situation in Syria novinite.bg

Turkish President Recep Erdogan and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, will meet today in Sochi. The main topic of discussion will be the situation in Syria.

Moscow believes that stability of the region can only be achieved by restoring Syrian unity. Ankara, however, wants Syrian government forces to leave areas near the Turkish border so that it can accommodate up to two million refugees.

Earlier, Turkey had threatened to renew its military offensive in northern Syria if the Kurdish fighters were not fully withdrawn 30 kilometers from the Turkish-Syrian border.

Under pressure from the United States, Ankara has decided to halt the fighting within 120 hours of the area's security zone, which expires tonight at 10 pm Bulgarian time.
