Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told reporters yesterday that he will most probably meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss US withdrawal from Syria as reported on Reuters.

He did not disclose the timing of the meeting. Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will travel to Russia in the coming days to discuss the same issue.

On Monday, Erdogan's spokesman said Turkey would increase coordination with Russia in Syria following the US decision to withdraw.
