Erdogan: Russia has not fulfilled its obligations in Syria

Nov 21, 2022

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Russia of failing to comply with the agreements in Syria.

Erdogan said this to journalists on Monday, reports the Turkish state agency Anadolu.

The Turkish president recalled the 2019 agreements made in Sochi, under which Russia took responsibility for mopping up parts of Syria from, according to Erdogan, terrorists.

"Unfortunately, despite repeated reminders from the Turkish side, these commitments have not been fulfilled. Or they are not fulfilled, cannot be fulfilled. In response, we say that if the agreements are not fulfilled, we ourselves will take the necessary steps against the terrorists," Erdoğan said.
"This is what the strikes the day before against 12 terrorist sites in Kobani, Syria, are related to. This is part of the operations that will continue," the Turkish president added.
