Russia Urges Turkey & Iran To Devise Plan To Crush Militants In Syria's Idlib

According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin told Turkey and Iran that he wanted to devise a plan to wipe out what he called 'a hotbed of terrorists' in Syria's Idlib region, an idea Moscow has, so far, been unable to sell to Ankara.

Putin was speaking at a summit in southern Russia to weigh the future of Syria with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
