Politics A- A A+

Turkey is determined to stop the Syrian regime's attempts to violate a cease-fire in Idlib province, the Turkish president said on Tuesday, Eurasia Diary reports citing Anadolu Agency.

"We are determined to stop the [Syrian] regime's attempts to violate cease-fire [in Idlib] -- ourselves if needed. It is no joke. Everybody should see and accept that Turkey definitely does what it says," Recep Tayyip Erdogan told his party's parliamentary group.

"I hope the cease-fire persists," Erdogan said.

Noting that previous cease-fires in the Idlib province were broken by the regime, he said: "This time, the situation is different."

Erdogan stressed that 400,000 Syrians must be returned to their homes as part of the cease-fire, Erdogan said.

He urged the international community to discuss the Syrian regime's use of violence.
