Stop insisting on Assad leadership: Turkey to Russian Federation

Turkey completes over half of Syria border barrier

Turkey completes over half of Syria border barrier

The US administration is disappointed by the way that Russian Federation reacted to Washington's air strike on a Syrian military base, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters.

Both Washington and Ankara blame the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Around 100-150 people gathered in front of the US embassy in Ankara on Saturday in protest of a USA military strike on Syria.

Erdogan justified the attack saying "the world must revise its position ' after the attack on Idlib, of which Ankara says the Syrian government is responsable and relied that the USA armed redsponse 'marks a beginning".

Last week, the US launched a missile strike on a Syrian military air base in retaliation for a chemical attack in northern Syria that the USA has blamed on the administration of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Saturday's phone call was the first between the top diplomats of Russian Federation and the U.S. since the strikes on the Syrian airfield. He also said the top USA priority in the region hasn't changed and remained the defeat of Islamic State militants.

"We're afraid to fully give weapons to Syria because we're afraid they will fall into hands of terrorists, so military escalation is not simple", he said.

"I find it disappointing, but sadly, not that surprising". "It is time to take serious steps for the protection of innocent Syrian people", Erdogan told a rally in the southern Turkish province of Hatay. Not surprisingly, he promised stability and in a familiar-sounding plea, asked the assemblage if they want "a great Turkey".

But he said the United States expected Russian Federation to take a tougher stance against Syria by rethinking its alliance with al-Assad because "every time one of these horrific attacks occurs, it draws Russian Federation closer into some level of responsibility".

"I don't expect there to be a role for Turkey, other than to continue to host coalition strike assets at Incirlik", said Stein from the Atlantic Council, pointing out that those assets were primarily used to support the SDF not fight Assad.

Elsewhere in Syria, a pair of activist groups reported that a USA -led coalition airstrike hit a boat carrying civilians fleeing across the Euphrates River, killing seven members of the same family.
