  • Smoke rises during evacuation in the besieged town of Douma Eastern Ghouta in Damascus Syria

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, left, Russia's President Vladimir Putin, right, and Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lock hands during a group photo in Ankara, Turkey, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

Ankara appears keen to keep its distance from one of the worst outbreaks of tensions since the Cold War between its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Washington and increasingly close partner Moscow.

Erdogan's remarks came a day after US President Donald Trump warned Russian Federation on Twitter to brace for US military engagement in Syria following a suspected chemical attack in the eastern Ghouta town of Douma, on April 8 that killed dozens of people.

Ankara appears keen to keep its distance from one of the worst outbreaks of tensions since the cold war between its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Washington and increasingly close partner Moscow.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim earlier in the day told Russian Federation and the United States to end their "street fighting" over Syria, saying it was time to put aside a rivalry that risked harming civilians. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"


In its readout of the Erdogan-Putin talks, the Kremlin said that "concern was expressed about the current escalation in and around Syria based on the overblown speculation concerning the purported use of chemical weapons in Douma".

Turkey has backed Anti-Assad forces, as Russian Federation and Iran heavily support the Syrian president.

"Assad regime must leave Syria and a change in the political process must start as soon as possible, " Cavusoglu said.

Turkey has waged a military campaign to drive Kurdish YPG fighters from the northwestern Afrin district, while Russian air power and Iran-backed militias have supported Syrian army offensives in the Idlib and Ghouta regions.

"Those who support the regime of murderer Assad are making a mistake". Until the end, we will fight against both these mistakes.
