Presidents of Russia and Turkey met Monday to try to come to an agreement over the Syrian's Idlib.

Iran Press/Europe: "We have a lot of issues to discuss, including difficult ones,”  Vladimir Putin said at the start of the talks at his residence in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi.

He added that the meeting would help “find solutions for where there are none yet.”

“I think not just the region, but the entire world has eyes focused on our meeting today,” Erdogan said for his part, in comments that were translated into Russian.

“I believe that the statement we will make after the Sochi meeting will give new hope to the region,” he added.

Recently, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov emphasised that only the Syrian people can decide the future of their country, stressing the fact that the US behaviour towards Idlib indicates that it wants to protect Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist outfit.

Hundreds of terrorists and their families were recently evacuated from southern Syria  and  lodged in the northwest of the country, in Idlib province.
