Inappropriate to Speculate on Erdogan Statement's Effect on Moscow-Ankara Ties
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's statements on his intention to depose Syrian leader Bashar Assad run counter to earlier reached agreements between Russia and Turkey, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said Wednesday.

"This runs counter to all agreements. First, Resolution 2254, Resolution 2268, decisions of the Vienna format, Lausanne format. We have been participating in these formats jointly with Turkey," Bogdanov told reporters.

Erdogan said Tuesday the Turkish armed forces' military operation in Syria is designed to put an end to the rule of Bashar Assad.
