Rouhani mentions Turkey: the problem in Idlib where terrorists exist, not east of Euphrates

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday reminded Turkey that the main problem in Syria is Idlib, where all the "terrorist organizations" gather, not east of the Euphrates.

Rouhani's remarks came as he took part in a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, quoted by Iran's IRNA news agency.

Rouhani said, "The main problem in Syria today is not east of the Euphrates, but Idlib and terrorism in Idlib, where all terrorist organizations meet, we hope that other countries, especially the Turkish government, will cooperate and focus more on this problem so that we do not face a new problem in the region. "

Rouhani called on Turkey to reconsider its decision to launch attacks on northern and eastern Syria.

This was the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif rejected any Turkish attack during a phone conversation between him and his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Oglu, stressing the need to respect the territorial integrity and national sovereignty, as he put it.
