نشست سه جانبه روسای جمهور ایران ،روسیه و ترکیه

Tehran (ISNA) - Turkey, Russia and Iran will hold a summit in April to discuss Syria and potential steps in the region, the spokesman for the Turkish foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

The meeting will be held in April attended by the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the Russian President Veladimir Putin, and the Turkish President Recep Teyyip Erdoga, foreign ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy told a news conference.

He added that Ankara would tell U.S. authorities during meetings on March 8-9 that it expected Washington to take concrete steps on retrieving weapons provided to the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, Reuters reported.

Aksoy said Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will visit Russia between March 12 and 14, and later meet with his U.S. counterpart Rex Tillerson in Washington on March 19.

Aksoy said Cavusoglu would also discuss during a visit to Germany the extradition of former Syrian Kurdish leader Saleh Muslim, who was released by a Czech court last week despite a Turkish extradition request.
