Iranian state TV runs fake news about Turkey's Afrin op

Turkish FM in Iran's capital for official visit

Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir Putin discussed Syria particularly Afrin and Idlib, during their phone conversation, the source said, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on talking to the media.

Putin and Erdogan discussed what the Kremlin said was "the importance of continuing the joint work of Russia, Turkey, and Iran" on Syria.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy on Thursday responded to the French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian statement about the ongoing Turkish-led Operation Olive Branch in Syria, Anadolu Agency reports.

Since Jan. 21 alone, rocket and mortar attacks launched by the PYD/PKK terrorist group in the Syrian enclave of Afrin have killed seven civilians and injured 113 in Hatay and Kilis.

The last time such meeting took place in Sochi, Russia, in November.

The visit by Cavusoglu came as Turkey launched a major military campaign in the northwestern Syrian city of Afrin against USA -backed Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG).

Russian Federation and the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which Russian Federation has been supporting with a campaign of air strikes and other military action since September 2015, refer to most of the forces fighting against the government as terrorists. A Russian military pilot died after a Su-25 warplane was shot down over rebel-held territory in Idlib on February 3.

The three nations are the guarantors of the Astana process, a forum for holding talks on ceasefires in Syria based in the Kazakh capitals.
