Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Russia on Wednesday to deal with alleged violations of a week-old ceasefire by Syrian government forces in Idlib.
“Although there are only small incidents here and there, the ceasefire has started to be violated,” said Erdogan, whose regime has been backing terrorists in the northwestern province.
“We are sharing these developments with Russia… and expect them to take measures,” he told lawmakers in Parliament.
Erdogan agreed a truce last week with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
“We signed the temporary ceasefire in Moscow. The matter now is to turn this ceasefire into a permanent one. We are chasing this speedily now. Once we are done with it, we will have an easier task,” Erdogan said.
Meanwhile, the Turkish president threatened “heavier” strikes on Syria than in the past.
“In the face of the smallest attack (on our posts), we will not only retaliate, but we will respond much more heavily.”
