Syria says Turkey did not achieve 'goals' in summit with Iran, Russia

Damascus said Wednesday that the Turkish president did not achieve his “goals” during yesterday’s summit with Iran and Russia, referring to Ankara’s efforts to rally support for a military operation in northern Syria.

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi hosted his Russian and Turkish counterparts, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on Tuesday as part of the “Astana Peace Process” ostensibly aimed at ending Syria’s 11-year conflict.

Iran and Russia support the Damascus government and Turkey supports rebel forces against the regime in the long-running war.
