President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan believes that re-establishing peace and stability in Syria depends on Western support to Ankara.
In a column titled The West should help Turkey end Syria's Civil War for Bloomberg, Erdoğan wrote that a peaceful and lasting solution will not be possible unless Syria's territorial integrity and political unity are respected.
Turkish border guards on Dec. 14 took into custody a suspected French-origin terrorist trying to cross into the country from its southern border with Syria, officials said.

A Turkish soldier, who was injured in Syria's northwestern Idlib in April, succumbed to his injuries, the National Defense Ministry said on June 7.

Turkey has said that even though the humanitarian crisis in Idlib, Syria is partially off the agenda due to the coronavirus pandemic, it should not be ignored by world leaders.
Addressing an aid meeting in southern Hatay province on June 7, the country's interior minister said Turkey has managed to deal with the virus outbreak amid a migration wave.
