Putin to visit Iran on Friday for tripartite talks on Syria

The Kremlin says the leaders of Russia, Iran and Turkey would on Friday hold a tripartite summit in Iran seeking an end to the Syrian conflict.

In a statement confirming the date of September 7 that was reported earlier by Turkish media, the Kremlin says Putin will “make a working visit to Iran” for the talks.

He and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will consider “further joint efforts to ensure long-term normalization of the situation in Syria,” the Kremlin says.

Putin also plans bilateral talks with each of the leaders, the statement adds.
