Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will meet in Ankara on Thursday with the Russian President’s special representative for the Syrian settlement Alexander Lavrentiev, RIA Novosti reported.

The meeting is scheduled for 14.00 Moscow time. It is noted that it will take place in a closed mode for the press.

As the Russian Foreign Ministry reported earlier, last week Lavrentiev and Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin visited Damascus and Ankara as part of the Russian interdepartmental delegation.

In Damascus, they met with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. In Ankara, they held detailed consultations with the adviser and press secretary of the Turkish President Ibrahim Kalyn and the Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal.

As the press service of the Kremlin reported on Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the situation in Syria by telephone with Erdogan, the leaders stressed the importance of a political settlement.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
