Trilateral meeting between Iran, Russia & Turkey FMs

Turkmen leader praises Tehran-Moscow-Ankara meeting on Syria

December 27, The Iran Project – An Iraqi Turkmen leader has praised the trilateral meeting of Iran, Russia and Turkey, calling the Iraqi government to join the campaign of  fighting against terrorists.

Speaking during a visit to Turkey, Arshad Salehi, head of the Iraqi Turkmen Front said Tehran-Moscow-Ankara trilateral meeting is an important step to expel terrorists from the region, adding without their efforts, all regional countries were subject to the terrorist crimes of Daesh and Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Salehi reemphasized the role of Iran-Turkey-Russia’s trilateral meeting on solving Syria’s crisis and fighting against terrorism, saying after the news released on the cooperation of Daesh and PKK terrorists group, urged Iraqi government to participate with the three countries in taking counter- terror measures.

He also went on to say that the presence of international observers in Aleppo is a great step to establish complete security in the war-torn city.

Last week, Tehran, Moscow and Ankara held a trilateral meeting to find a political solution to the Syria crisis at the initiative of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in the Russian capital.

After years of fighting against terrorists, the Syrian military wrested full control of the militant-held eastern Aleppo in December 12.

Iran and Russia support the Syrian government in the fight against terrorism. Moscow has been providing air cover for the Syrian army’s counter-terrorism operations on the ground since September 2015. And Tehran has also been offering advisory assistance to Syrian armed forces.
