Some working-level communications are underway to prepare a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Syrian counterpart Bashar Assad, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"A meeting like that has to be preceded by a whole range of communications at the working level, which are now underway. This work will continue," the spokesman said, when asked if the presidents could meet.

Dmitry Peskov said in December 2022 there was potential to arrange a meeting between Bashar Assad and Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Russia but he noted there were no details at the time about how it might happen.
