ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday that he hoped to find a solution over Syria's Idlib region during a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
Cavusoglu made the comment during a joint news conference in Ankara.
The Idlib region in northern Syria is the largest remaining Syrian rebel-held enclave. President Bashar al-Assad, who is backed by Moscow, has said his forces will recapture the region where Turkey has set up a dozen military observation posts.
