Turkish Foreign Ministry on Wednesday summoned the U.S. Embassy Charge d'Affaires Philip Kosnett in Ankara over recent developments in Syria, Anadolu Agency reported citing a diplomatic source.

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.

The YPG is supported by United States with arms and training which angers Turkey.

While the USA views the Peoples' Protection Units (YPG) militia as the most effective fighting force on the ground against Islamic State (IS) extremists, Ankara calls it a "terrorist" organisation linked to outlawed Kurdish militants in Turkey. In May 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli called the supply of weapons to the Kurdish forces "unacceptable".

Two of them, including an army officer and a sergeant, surrendered in the capital Ankara, said a security source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on talking to the media.

Russia's ambassador to Ankara, Alexei Yerkhov and Iranian ambassador Mohammad Ebrahim Taherian Fard were called in to express Turkey's discontent over the continuing attacks in Idlib.

Russia's defence ministry had asked the Turkish military on Wednesday to tighten control over armed groups in Idlib after two groups of drones attacked Russian bases on January 6. "If you are guarantors, which you are, stop the regime". Daesh (IS) terrorists were moved from different parts of the country to Idlib under certain understandings.

Effedili said Turkey, Iran, and the regime forces would be happy to take back SDF-controlled areas.

Lavrov noted that Moscow and Tehran have reached an important stage in preparation for implementing the initiative launched by Russia, Iran and Turkey to organize the Sochi Congress.
