ANKARA, September 29. /TASS/. Ankara and Moscow are discussing the possibilities of establishing a ceasefire in Syria, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated at a press conference in the country’s capital of Ankara.

"We have strongly backed the previous agreements between Russia and the US on the ceasefire. Unfortunately, the ceasefire failed to fully come into force. Since our bilateral relations have been normalized, we have been discussing these issues with Russia. If the Russian Federation says it wants to cooperate with us in this area, then we are ready for it, too," the minister said.

He also announced that on Wednesday he "discussed the issues connected with the prospects for a ceasefire and ways to ensure it with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif."

"Since the previous ceasefire agreement wasn’t implemented, we should continue exerting efforts to achieve another ceasefire in Syria," Cavusoglu added.
