President Erdogan Warns That A Turkish Military Offensive On Syria's Idlib Is 'Only A Matter Of Time'

VOA/RFE: Erdogan: Talks With Russia Unsatisfactory, Turkish Offensive in Syria 'Matter Of Time'

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned that a military operation in the northwestern Syrian region of Idlib was a "matter of time" if President Bashar al-Assad's forces fail to withdraw behind Turkish military positions — prompting criticism from Moscow.
