Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan affirmed that the ceasefire agreement in the Syrian city of Idlib has significant gains in many areas.

Erdoانan told reporters on the plane taking him from the country from Moscow, during which he met Russian President Vladimir Putin, those gains in detail.

He said that the agreement makes Turkey’s borders more protected from the Syrian regime and its attacks, in addition to paving the way for stability in the city of Idlib.

He stated that among the gains of the ceasefire agreement was ensuring the security of Turkish soldiers in Idlib, and an important step to protect civilians.

Erdogan indicated that he discussed with his Russian counterpart that the developments in Syria and Idlib should not affect bilateral relations.

Turkey and Russia had signed a ceasefire from midnight on Thursday-Friday in Idlib, northwestern Syria, in an attempt to avoid a major escalation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan also agreed to establish a security corridor and joint patrols.

Erdogan stressed that the monitoring points in Idlib will maintain their current status, “there is no change in this regard at this time.”

He said: “Our goal is to activate the political track in Syria according to UN Security Council Resolution 2254 and end the internal war.”

He stressed that the army will always be ready to respond to violations and possible attacks by the Syrian regime in “Idlib.”

On the other hand, Erdogan said that Turkey has received the entire system “S-400” in full and it will be activated as of next April.
