Russia and Turkey have said they have agreed to a ceasefire in Syria’s Idlib province after clashes left scores of Turkish and Syrian soldiers dead in a dangerous escalation of violence.

Incredible. Can there be any greater symbol of the war than this peace deal, which mentions neither the Syrian government nor opposition, and ends by saying the document is valid in "Turkish, Russian and English". No version in Arabic, the language I always thought Syrians spoke. https://t.co/WZtrWkS76s

Turkish Health Minister Fahrettin Koca has said that he told an Iranian delegation planning to visit Turkey to not come, but suggested talking over Skype instead, amid the coronavirus outbreak in Iran.
Criticizing Iranian authorities, Koca said that the country started to take the outbreak seriously until it was too late.
So humiliating! Putin really made clear who's the boss. Who is a geopolitical and who is just a regional power. https://t.co/qEoBU2AdUV
