Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Monday in another bid to avert a looming Syrian government assault on the rebel-held province of Idlib bordering Turkey that has sparked global concern.

Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu stated earlier on Friday that Erdogan plans to discuss developments in Syria with the Russian president on Monday, September 17.

The presidents of Russia, Iran and Turkey met last week in Tehran to consider alternatives, but failed to reach a consensus.

The United Nations, world powers, and aid groups alike have warned a full-fledged offensive on Idlib could create a humanitarian calamity.

In the run-up to a possible Idlib offensive, the Syrian government and Russian Federation have alleged that rebels in Idlib are planning to use chemical weapons to frame the government and induce Western punitive airstrikes.

"It is in our interest for Syria to be a stable country".

"We are making an effort for a ceasefire in Idlib", he said, repeating Turkey's call for targeted operations against jihadist militants, including the Tahrir al-Sham alliance, instead of an indiscriminate onslaught.

Thousands of protesters attend a demonstration against the Syrian government offensive to Idlib, in the northwestern town of Maarat al-Numan, also known as al-Maarra, south of Idlib, Syria, Friday, Sept 14, 2018.

"We are ready to cooperate with everyone in the fight against terror groups but the killing of civilians, women and children under the guise of fighting against terror is not correct", he said. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

"Any offensive on the civilian people in Idlib was going to be dealt with", Haley told Fox News' Bret Baier.

Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday a Turkish convoy entered from Kfar Lusin crossing in northern Idlib, heading to some of the 12 Turkish observations points that ring Idlib.

"We are working with Russia, Iran and other allies to bring peace and stability and to stop a humanitarian tragedy", Akar said, according to Anadolu.

Already hosting 3.5 million Syrians - the world's biggest refugee population - Turkey says it can not absorb more victims of the war and has accused the West of abandoning it to face the consequences of President Bashar al-Assad's reconquest of Syria. "Every time it follows us, we escape a meter to the north and leave it up to God, where will we go?" he said.

Lavrov promised: "We will establish humanitarian corridors, set up ceasefire zones and we are doing everything to ensure that the civilian population would not suffer".
