November 17, 2018

TEHRAN – Chairman of Turkey’s ultranationalist Homeland Party (VP) Dogu Perincek has said delegations from Turkey and Syria met six times in Iran recently.

Perincek told Sputnik news that the meetings were organized at the request of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish Minute reported on Thursday.

He added that there is also military cooperation between Turkey and Syria regarding the Turkish military’s cross-border operations in Syria.

Iran, Russia and Turkey have also held several rounds of peace talks in Kazakhstan’s Astana and elsewhere to help end the conflict in Syria. The fourth round of those talks in May 2017 produced a memorandum of understanding on de-escalation zones in Syria, sharply reducing fighting in the country.
