TEHRAN (defapress)- Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of Rai al-Youm newspaper, said the Syria president's invitation to the recent tripartite summit of the Iranian, Turkish and Russian leaders in Ankara has started new equations in the Syrian file and increased the chances of Damascus to join the triangle.

Syria to Join Iran-Turkey-Russia Tripartite ProcessAtwan believes that invitation of Assad to the meeting shows that differences between Damascus and Ankara are being resolved gradually and the crisis in Syria is ending, stressing that overthrowing Assad is no more an issue in the conflict in Syria.

"In addition to the agreements, the tripartite meeting in Ankara indicates the overal failure of the US policies in Syria and the Middle-East and the same desperation made US President Donald Trump declare the pullout of the US troops from the Syrian territories in fury," he added, noting that Ankara's retreat from cooperation with Washington was the biggest reason for the US failure in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

According to Atwan, Syria's seat in the tripartite coalition has been kept and it will soon join the meeting which will likely be held in Tehran in the next few months, which he said would pave the ground for Damascus and Ankara's rapprochement.

The presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey met last Wednesday for high-level talks on ending the Syrian war, cementing their influence on the outcome of the conflict and isolating the United States from the region’s most crucial diplomacy.

The three presidents - Iran’s Hassan Rouhani, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, gathered in Ankara, where they pledged to cooperate on reconstruction and aid efforts.

They also vowed to protect Syria’s territorial integrity. They called for more support from the international community and emphasized their opposition to “separatist agendas” in Syria.
