Erdogan says Syria peace talks pointless while Russian attacks continue

ANKARA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Syrian peace talks in Geneva were pointless while President Bashar Assad's forces and Russia continued their attacks in the country.
"Russia continues to kill people in Syria. Could there be such a peace gathering? Could there be such peace talks?," Erdogan said in a speech in Peru, in comments which were published on the presidency website.
"In an environment where children are still being killed, such attempts do not have any function apart from making things easier for the tyrant," he said, casting doubt on whether the talks, which collapsed on Wednesday, would resume.
