Turkey`s national news agency Anadolu has published a map that supposedly illustrates the Sochi agreement, with Turkish territory dyed green on the map and moving eastward into Syria`s Aleppo province. The Syrian government is described as a “regime” on the Turkish map. A copy of the Russian-Turkish agreement negotiated in Sochi on Monday by President Vladimir Putin and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appeared. If confirmed, it will mark the first official Russian recognition of the partition of Syria, which will allow Turkey to regain control of the Ottoman region of northwestern Syria, lost after the Turkish defeat of World War I. At the start of the more than six-hour Kremlin talks, the two heads of state and government stressed the need for an agreement. One of the objectives was to prevent their bilateral relations and prosperous trade from harming. The Moscow Treaty (Turkish: Moskova Antla-masa, Russian: ” ) was an agreement between the Grand National Assembly of Turkey (TBMM) under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and Russia, under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin, signed on 16 March 1921.    Neither the Republic of Turkey nor the Soviet Union had been founded at that time. The internationally recognized Turkish government was Then Sultan Mehmed VI, but he was not a party to the Moscow Treaty.
The sultan`s government had signed the Treaty of Sevres, which had been rejected by the Turkish National Movement. In Thursday`s deal with Erdogan in the Kremlin, Putin joined Turkish calls for a ceasefire, something the Syrian government and its Russian promoter had previously refused by going on an offensive to clear the last rebel pockets in Idlib. Unlike Syrian President Assad, who has vowed to recover “every inch of ground” from the rebels, Russia`s main focus is on protecting its military bases in Syria and avoiding a larger war. At the United Nations in New York, Nebenzia`s office was asked to authenticate his letter and the text of the agreement; he refused. Sinirlioglu was also asked to authenticate the documents; He refused, too. Putin doubled his bet on Mr Erdogan in September 2018 when he agreed, during a meeting with the Turkish head of state in Sochi, on the Black Sea coast, to deter Syrian forces from a long-standing offensive on Idlib, against the advice of his own generals. The full text of what was agreed in Sochi was never published, but the agreement was widely seen as an attempt by Mr Putin to cement a partnership with Mr Erdogan, who had done so much to divide and tarnish NATO. You said that the agreement was a ceasefire that would come into force at midnight in Idlib, the last stronghold of the Syrian rebels. The agreement also included joint patrols of Russian and Turkish troops from a seven-mile corridor along a highway through Idlib to the east of the Mediterranean coast towards the border with Iraq. A Turkish military analyst for Al-Monitor commented that the terms of the agreement were favorable to Erdogan, but for now ambiguous, perhaps temporarily. “The question now is how this comprehensive plan will be implemented in a month`s time. Less than two weeks ago, at a meeting in Tehran, Putin contradicted Erdogan`s request for a ceasefire and said: “Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other radicals are not at the negotiating table.
