Sands: the differences with Ankara may become an obstacle to pooling efforts in Syria


MOSCOW, February 15. Disagreements with Ankara may become a serious obstacle to the creation of a United anti-terrorist front in Syria. This opinion was expressed to journalists the President’s press Secretary Dmitry Peskov.

“A very significant impediment may be” – he said, answering the question of how serious the problem is to create a United anti-terrorist front can be disagreements between Russia and Turkey.

The representative of the Kremlin recalled that in a telephone conversation yesterday with U.S. President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin “emphasized the necessity of creating real mechanisms for cooperation – not just information sharing, and cooperation” in Syria. “Because without cooperation in the framework of a United front to talk about overall effective against terrorists is hardly necessary,” concluded Sands.
