The crisis in the Syrian province of Idlib is a “test of strength” for Russian-Turkish relations, writes Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan “protests” against the Syrian-Russian offensive in Idlib. In turn, Russia still does not react to the demands of the Turkish side to stop the military actions and is “determined to dislodge all groups of mercenaries from the province,” the German edition notes.
Ankara accuses the government of Bashar Assad of violating the treaty on the establishment of security zones in Syria. Moscow, however, claims that the military operation in Idlib is conducted against terrorist groups and is therefore necessary.
“Noteworthy” Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten considers the event, which occurred on January 10, 2018. Then the Russian Defense Ministry, according to the publication, sent letters to the Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of Turkey, General Akar Hulusi, and the head of the National Intelligence Organization, Hakan Fidan.
“Turkey is obliged to persuade Ankara-controlled armed groups to comply with the ceasefire,” the letter addressed to the head of the Turkish National Intelligence Organization, Hakan Fidan, quotes Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.
The publication draws attention to the fact that even in the issue of the Kurds, Moscow gave Ankara an “unequivocal” answer: “Russia did not allow Turkey a military operation against the Kurdish People’s Self-Defense Forces.”
In the opinion of Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, thus, considering all of the above, “Putin pointed Erdogan’s boundaries of permitted in Syria.” “Russia does not trust Erdogan for objective reasons.
