Officials from Russia,Turkey and Iran are meeting on Tuesday to discuss the civil war in Syria amid heightened tensions following the shooting of a Russian ambassador in the Turkish capital Ankara.
Andrei Karlov, Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, was shot dead on Monday while giving a speech at a gallery by a former police officer who shouted “Don’t forget Aleppo” and “God is greatest.”
Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan said the attack was an attempt to undermine the country’s relations with Russia, which have recently been tested thanks to the ongoing conflict in Syria.
Whereas Russia has been supporting the regime of the Syrian president Bashar Assad, Turkey would like to see the Syrian president gone and the conflict in Syria to end so it doesn’t have to deal with so many refugees escaping the war. Harris described President Erdogan as “the most hostile” to what’s been happening in Syria.
Since the rapprochement with Moscow in June, Erdogan has attempted to avoid criticizing Russia directly although the pro-government media has been outspoken in its condemnation of the civilian casualties as the result of alleged Russian air strikes in Aleppo.
