Syrian media reports said that Turkey agreed to withdraw its forces from Syria, following tripartite talks in the Russian capital, Moscow.

According to what was published by the Syrian newspaper Al-Watan, quoting informed sources in Damascus, Ankara agreed to withdraw its forces from Syrian territory after tripartite talks between the defence ministers of Russia, Syria, and Turkey in Moscow, last Wednesday.

And THE Syrian newspaper confirmed that Russia, Turkey, and Syria also discussed the implementation of the agreement reached in 2020 regarding the opening of the M4 highway linking Aleppo to the port of Latakia on the Mediterranean Sea.

The sources indicated that the meeting also resulted in an agreement between all parties that "the PKK, a pro-Marxist Kurdish party, which is banned in Turkey, is a proxy of Israel and the United States of America (USA) and poses the greatest threat to Syria and Turkey."
