17 February, 12:53

    ISTANBUL - A Turkish delegation is in Moscow on Monday for talks on the crisis in Idlib after two meetings held over the past 10 days in Ankara. The meeting, which military and intelligence representatives from the two sides are expected to attend, comes after the killing of 13 Turkish soldiers in two separate Syrian government raids at the start of February.
    Turkey has asked Russia to exercise its role as guarantor for the agreements of Astana and Sochi, stopping Bashar al Assad's offensive against rebels in the north-west, and bringing its forces behind the lines in which Turkish military observation positions are located. Moscow for its part has urged Ankara to stop anti-regime ''terrorists''.
    After today's meeting, Anadolu reported that talks have been scheduled between Foreign Ministers Mevlut Cavusoglu and Serghiei Lavrov to discuss the situation also ahead of a potential emergency summit between Presidents Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin.
