Syrian ambassador to Turkey said on Wednesday that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan would visit Syria on December 22, and the two countries would sign 42 new agreements on education, health, transportation and politics.
Syrian Ambassador Nidal Kabalan told the Anatolia news agency that Syria would never leave alone Turkey in regard to indirect peace talks between Israel and Syria. "Israel clearly said that it does not want Turkey as a mediator. But Syria will continue to its path with Turkey," Kabalan said.
Erdoğan would visit Syria on December 22 and a meeting between prime ministers of Turkey and Syria would take place, Kabalan said.
"Prime Minister Erdoğan's visit will be a turning point," Kabalan said.
