ERDOGAN SAYS DEESCALATION PLAN WOULD ‘HALF SOLVE’ SYRIA CONFLICT

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said a Moscow-backed plan to set up so-called de-escalation zones inside Syria would “50 percent” solve the six-year conflict, in comments published Thursday.

Erdogan on Wednesday discussed with Russian President Vladimir Putin a plan floated by Moscow for “de-escalation zones” to be set up in several areas in Syria.

Speaking to Turkish reporters aboard his plane flying back from the meeting in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Erdogan said such zones would include Idlib, part of Aleppo province, El-Rastan in Homs province, a part of Damascus and part of Daraa.

“I hope that if this is implemented then 50 percent of the Syrian issue can be solved,” he said in comments published on the websites of the Hurriyet and Yeni Safak dailies.

Details on what the de-escalation zones would comprise have been thin so far but Erdogan described the plan as a “new concept” and distinct from Ankara’s previous proposals for terror-free safe zones.
