Recalling that Ankara was not able to build dialogue with the USA because of Washington's support to Syrian Kurdish militia, Turkey's leverage in Syria would weaken if it also looses cooperation with Russian Federation, he said.

In Washington, a State Department spokesman confirmed the meeting occurred but said "beyond that we aren't going to read out any details of the conversation".

Earlier, Ankara's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated that Syrian armed forces have been carrying out attacks on the so-called moderate opposition in the province of Idlib under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

Russian Federation and Iran have backed Syrian regime while Turkey has supported its foes, but, despite the differences, they struck a deal in 2017 to set up de-escalation zones in Syria, helping reduce fighting. In May 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli called the supply of weapons to the Kurdish forces "unacceptable". Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned Moscow and Tehran that they must fulfill their duties under the de-escalation zone accord struck with Ankara a year ago.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has also in the past called the United States arming of the YPG "a mistake".

Turkey has became the guarantor of some "moderate" rebel groups, while Iran and Russian Federation is responsible for the acts of Syrian government.

Ankara was annoyed with the Syrian Army's operations in the Idlib region and called Iran and Moscow diplomats to the foreign ministry to protest over the violation of "the non-conflict" agreement.

However, Syrian regime forces, with Russian backing have stepped up attacks trying to regain control of the area controlled by the rebels. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime".

Cavusoglu said that ties between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies could be harmed further if Washington does not correct its mistakes, Reuters reported.
