Turkey, Iran, Russia Presidents to Hold  Summit over Syrian Crisis on Sept. 7

ANKARA - Presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey will hold a trilateral summit in Iran on Sept. 7 as part of the Astana peace process over the Syrian crisis, the Turkish presidency said Monday.
The meeting between Turkey, Russia and Iran, the three guarantors of a cease-fire deal in Syria, comes ahead of increasing international efforts in reaching a solution to the Syrian crisis.
The summit will be held in the northern Iranian city of Tabriz, according to broadcaster TRT Haber.
The three countries have been mediating a peace process for the Syrian crisis since 2016.
Ankara has been urging against an impending military operation by the Syrian forces targeting the rebel-held Idlib Province, citing concerns of civilian casualties and a possible refugee influx toward Turkish border. (Xinhua)
