Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described talks with his Russian and Iranian counterparts at a Syria peace summit on Monday as "productive." "We are in complete agreement in aiming for a lasting political solution for Syria's political unity and territorial integrity," Erdogan told reporters.
While all three leaders avoided providing specifics on the talks, the Turkish president said that "important decisions" had been made. The dominant topic at the summit was the situation in Idlib, where government forces are conducting an offensive supported by Russian air power.
Turkey maintains a military presence in northern Syria and its troops have occasionally clashed with regime forces.
