MUNICH, February 19. /TASS/. At the present stage it is necessary to provide full ceasefire in Syria with assistance from Russia, Iran and other countries in the region, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told the Munich Security Conference on Sunday.
"Now, our main task is ceasefire in Syria," he said. "With Russia, Iran and other countries we have achieved results in that direction, and we should be working together for settlement of the crisis."
"Turkey and Russia may have different positions on most issues, including on (Syria’s President) Bashar Assad," the foreign minister said. "However, earlier, other countries already tried reaching agreement on settlement in Syria, but nothing has been implemented."
"Russia and we have got to the table and discussed what we could do for the Syrians," he said. "Our negotiations have worked; the ceasefire was provided and extended.".
