Today is a day of days. The six hour talks between Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on the situation in Syria have concluded and, as far as I can see, have proved to be very successful.
There is far too much content for me to comment on, so I won’t, but my overall opinion is that everybody gets what they want, everybody is likely to be somewhere between happy and content, and nobody loses – except America of course, placed on the outer, which is somehow a minimal amount of poetic justice for all the trouble they have caused. They should not now linger on the doorstep, but exit and write their Syrian venture up as a lesson learned.
I’m going to provide a list of articles, mostly from TASS, for your personal perusal. I had to choose a lead article, and one with pictures is always good, especially when the subject is the Syrian army recovering its lost territory and by so doing preventing any further expansion of the Turkish incursion into their lands. So, this is it – and what better than to come from SANA – Syria’s own national news agency?
