Cavusoglu names main causes of discord between Turkey and US

Earlier on Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu had warned Russian Federation and Iran to adhere to their joint accord signed with Turkey past year for announcing "de-escalation zone" in Syrian town Idlib.

Ankara has been working closely with Russian Federation and Iran to end the Syrian conflict over the last months but has stepped up pressure on Moscow and Tehran as the bombardments on Idlib intensified. They gave no details of Ankara's concerns.

According to the news report, Cavusoglu says Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl is invited to visit Ankara on January 25.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Thursday he should stop Syrian attacks on its opposition in northern Syria if he wants peace negotiations to succeed, Turkish presidential sources said.

Syrian regime's forces have increased military operations recently to impose control over Idlib and the Eastern Ghouta, the last two rebel bastions in Syria.

Turkey has been fiercely opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during his country's six-year-old civil war but has recently been working with his allies Russian Federation and Iran for a political resolution to the conflict.

For is part, Zarif stressed Iran's commitment to cooperate with Russia and Turkey to find a way to reach a political settlement in Syria, hailing the effective impact of Russian-Iranian cooperation in fighting terrorism and extremism in the region.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Wednesday said Turkey had run out of patience over its stalled bid to join the European Union.

Turkey is not happy that the United States has continued to support and arm Syrian Kurdish fighters, and their foreign ministry has summoned the top USA diplomat in the country to voice its "discomfort" over the situation.
