Syria Meeting for Global Leaders
Istanbul, Turkey - October 27, 2018
Turkey will host a summit on October 27, to discuss the ongoing situation in war torn Syria.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will meet with French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Russian President Vladimir Putin, to talk about the situation in Syria’s Idlib province and the political process to end the conflict, that has ravaged the country for over seven years.
Russia has held the balance of power in Syria, both on the battlefield and in the U.N.-led peace talks, for the past two years. It has helped Syrian President Bashar al-Assad recover huge amounts of lost territory without persuading him to agree to any political reforms.
But nine rounds of talks, most of them in Geneva, have failed to bring the warring sides together to end a conflict that has killed hundreds of thousands of people and driven millions from their homes.
