Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday that some progress had been made in talks with Russia on Syria’s Idlib region, where Ankara has threatened to mount an offensive, but added that the discussions had not yet produced a solution, Reuters reported.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that a Turkish military operation in Idlib to drive back a Russian-backed Syrian government offensive that has displaced nearly a million people was a “matter of time” after talks with Moscow failed to reach a solution.

Speaking to broadcaster TRT Haber, Cavusoglu said Turkey and Russia would continue their talks on Idlib in the coming days, adding that Erdogan and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, may discuss the issue as well.
