Erdogan said Turkey has done its best for Syrian people since the start of war and provided $35 billion aid in every area.
"We have resolutely preserved the spirit of Astana [peace process] despite all problems, dissidence and even some provocations," he added.
With his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Erdogan met to discuss the joint efforts, conducted on the ground and within the political process by the Astana platform to find a lasting solution to the Syrian conflict.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
