Trilateral talks among the Turkish, Russian and Syrian defense ministers will continue, and Ankara hopes for a "reasonable" negotiation, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said on Wednesday, APA reports citing Urdupoint.

"Our position at a meeting in Moscow was to protect our country and our people. We expressed our determination to our interlocutors: for us, there can be no question of doing anything against our Syrian brothers, both in Turkey and in Syria. They should not rely on unrealistic reports or accept other attitudes. Our negotiations will continue. We hope that the process will continue in a reasonable and logical way," Akar told reporters.
