Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Syria faced air and missile strikes only after the alleged use of Chemical Weapons, however, during the past 7 years, millions have been killed/displaced.

"Eradicating terrorism, putting an end to war in Syria and creating regional security are among the main objectives of Iran, Turkey and Russian Federation".

The Turkish president, for his part, said his country's cooperation with Iran and Russian Federation to help ease tensions in Syria is a main priority, Iran's official news agency IRNA reported.

Earlier, President Erdogan held phone talks with leaders of several countries.

He then added some western powers think that they should interfere in Syria's internal affairs under any condition.

In a phone call with Putin on Sunday, the Iranian president said the "aggressive" United States move to carry out military strikes against Syria revealed that Washington had direct ties with terrorists.

Erodgan, for his part, welcomed any move paving the way for expansion of ties between Turkey and Iran.

The leaders spoke about Syria's territorial integrity, adding that it was important to continue the joint efforts by Turkey, Iran and Russian Federation for a lasting political solution to the Syrian crisis as part of the Astana peace process.

Stating Turkey's clear stance against the use of chemical weapons, Erdogan said it is important to not allow tensions to escalate and evaluate the incidents within its context.

The presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey on April 4 reaffirmed their commitment to work toward achieving a sustainable ceasefire between warring sides in Syria and bringing peace and stability to the war-torn Arab country.
