The US charges d'affaires in Ankara has been summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry over recent developments in Syria, sources in the Turkish foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

Earlier on Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu had warned Russian Federation and Iran they should adhere to the joint accord they signed with Turkey previous year in which the three countries announced a "de-escalation zone" in Idlib.

Russia will continue constructive cooperation with Turkey for Syrian course, but it will not give up fighting against terrorist groups such as al-Nusra, Russia's Izvestiya newspaper reported Thursday quoting anonymous Russian officials. According to a Turkish diplomatic source, the ministry "voiced its reaction and concerns in this regard, also asking them to convey the information to the [Syrian] regime in order to make it stop such actions".

Turkey and the United States have been at loggerheads over Washington's policy of support for the YPG, which Ankara views as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) that has waged an insurgency in Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast for more than three decades.

Ankara accuses USA -based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen of masterminding the putsch and has repeatedly asked Washington for his extradition. In May 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli called the supply of weapons to the Kurdish forces "unacceptable".

Safadi also briefed his Turkish counterpart on the outcome of the Arab ministerial meeting that was hosted by Jordan last Saturday in implementation of the decision taken by the Arab League Council during its emergency meeting last month.

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.

Turkey has became the guarantor of some "moderate" rebel groups, while Iran and Russian Federation is responsible for the acts of Syrian government. Daesh (IS) terrorists were moved from different parts of the country to Idlib under certain understandings.

Humanitarian aid organisations, rescuers and activists allege the Syrian and Russian air forces have struck hospitals, schools and marketplaces in congested residential areas in rebel-held towns.
