Turkey summons top United States envoy over Syrian Kurds

Kremlin close Russia-Iran-Turkey dialogue on Syria to continue

The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also called out Russian Federation and Iran to stick to the joint accord they signed with Turkey past year agreeing on a "de-escalation zone" in Idlib which were set up to scale back the conflict.

Turkey's foreign ministry has summoned a senior USA diplomat to express Ankara's "discomfort" over Washington's support for Syrian Kurdish fighters, state media reported.

Turkey also sees the YPG as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and believes it is waging an insurgency against the Turkish state.

Russia, Iran and Turkey are supposed to be the guarantors of last year's accord but Moscow and Tehran appear bent on reneging on their role to de-escalate fighting in the area, home to almost 2 million Syrians, to serve their own agenda.

The Syrian regime's attacks on "moderate opposition" could cause throwback to Russian initiated national dialogue meeting in Sochi, because the talks aim peace negotiations also with those rebel groups, said the official. "Iran and Russian Federation", warned Cavusoglu, "need to carry out their responsibilities".

Furthermore, the offensive could lead to collapse of Astana process and eventually the hardly established cease-fire in de-escalation zones.

New tax guidelines will rely on workers to double-check their paychecks

Ankara has already summoned the Russian and Iranian ambassadors, in the biggest public flare-up of tensions with Moscow and Tehran in months.

On January 6, two Russian bases in Syria were attacked by unmanned aircraft (drones). Iran has its own strategic goals in "finishing off" what remains from the opposition forces in Idlib.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham group, spearheaded by the former al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria that was known as the al-Nusra Front, is mainly dominating in Idlib.

"Firstly, these are provocations aimed at the collapse of the earlier reached agreements".

Citing an anonymous diplomatic source, Anadolu news agency said that US Embassy Charge d'Affaires Philip Kosnett was summoned on Wednesday, without offering any further details.
