Normalization of Russia-Turkey Relations to Help Syrian Settlement
ANKARA (Sputnik) Turkey needs to normalize its relations with Syria in order to effectively combat terrorism, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Wednesday.

"We will increase the number of our friends. Turkey has normalized relations with Israel and Russia. I am sure that the same thing will happen on the Syrian track. We need it. It is necessary to provide stability for the successful defeat of terrorism in Syria and Iraq," Yildirim said at a meeting with the heads of Turkey's ruling party's regional departments.

Earlier this week, Yildirim said that Turkey saw no reason for confrontation with neighboring countries, such as Syria, Iraq and Egypt, and expressed Ankara's intention to improve its relations with these states.
