Turkish president says Astana process, effective to end Syrian crisis

Ankara, Sept 17, IRNA –Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he believes the Astana peace process on Syria is the only way that can provide a solution to the eight-year humanitarian crisis in Syria.

Ankara, Tehran and Moscow should take more responsibility to bring tranquility to Syria, Erdogan said at the opening ceremony on a trilateral summit in Ankara on Monday.

The fifth trilateral summit on Syria crisis was held in Ankara, Turkey, with participation of heads of the three states- Iran, Turkey and Russia.

The trilateral meeting would focus on the humanitarian crisis in Syria, the unrest and lack of control of the Syrian Government on the northwestern city of Idlib and the Syrian refugees in particular, Erdogan noted.

At his remarks, the Turkish president stressed the need to preserve the Syrian national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“We agree completely on preserving the Syrian national sovereignty, territorial integrity, protecting tranquility in the field, and finding a lasting political solution,” President Erdogan said.

Iran, Russia and Turkey are the three guarantors of peace in Syria which has been suffering from unrest and terrorist acts since March 2011.
