Erdogan Kept Waiting by Putin ahead of Meeting

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was kept waiting by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his delegation before a meeting last week, a video circulated by Russian media show.

In the video, Erdogan and his delegation are shown to wait for around two minutes before the meeting begins. Erdogan is shown standing and eventually sitting down after he couldn’t stand anymore. The Turkish president then was ushered into the room where he shakes Putin’s hand.

The meeting in Moscow last week was aimed at easing tensions in Syria’s Idlib. The two leaders agreed a ceasefire in the northwestern province, the last stronghold of foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists in the Arab country.

Idlib has been, for weeks, scene for fierce battles between Turkish-backed terrorists and Syrian Army.

The Syrian Army has stepped up its operations aimed at regaining control of Idlib, with Ankara offering all forms of support to terrorists even deploying its forces in the area.
