Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem accused Turkey of supporting terrorists of the Jabhat al-Nusra group. He stated this, speaking at the general political debate of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly (GA).
“The Turkish regime is one of the main sponsors of terrorism in the region. He continues to support Jabhat al-Nusra and related groups, ” the minister said.
The presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed on a ceasefire in Idlib at the talks in Moscow on March 5. The parties agreed on an additional protocol, according to the terms of which all hostilities on the contact line in Idlib are ended and the so-called security corridor is created along the M4 highway passing through Idlib. The reason for the high-level talks was a sharp aggravation of the situation in the province, as a result of which at least 62 Turkish soldiers were killed in January-February.
