Turkey’s focus on foreign policy matters continues in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, the country’s communication director said late on Monday.

“Our government continues to be focused on the coronavirus challenge at home and abroad but we are also working on foreign policy matters such as those in Syria, Libya & the Aegean Sea.

Altun stressed Turkey stands by the March 5 agreement with Russia and is determined not to allow Syrian regime’s aggression in Idlib despite provocations.
