ISTANBUL, December 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan came up with a number of new settlement proposals for Syria during their talks on Monday, December 3, and they will work on them.
“Russia and Turkey have so far not been able to come to agreement on how to settle the conflict in Syria, but their assessments of the situation are identical,” Putin said after the talks.
He stressed that Russia and Turkey would continue their joint efforts to achieve a settlement in Syria.
Putin said on Monday, December 3, that the relevant instructions have been given to the Russian and Turkish foreign ministries.
He stressed that Syria is not anywhere near to creating nuclear weapons and noted that Syria has more urgent things to deal with than attacking Turkey.
At the same time, Putin made it clear that is not acting as a lawyer for the present Syrian leadership.
