Moscow, Jan. 11 (Petra)– The Kremlin’s spokesman has revealed how the summoning of Russia’s envoy to Turkey might influence the Syrian peace settlement.

Commenting on the recent summoning of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “The process of implementing agreements on de-escalation zones [in Syria] and the process of political settlement, in particular, the preparation of the National Congress in Sochi, require constant contacts [with Turkey] at various levels on the expert level, at the highest level, on others as well. These contacts are being maintained, and, of course, such a close dialogue will continue.” The remark comes in the wake of Turkey’s decision to summon Russian and Iranian envoys to the country, seeking to cease the Syrian government’s violation of de-escalation zone borders in Idlib, reported Sputnik.
