ANKARA-US Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey on Wednesday met with Turkish officials in Ankara amid tensions between Turkey and Russia over an escalation in the conflict in Syria's Idlib Province.

Jeffrey met with Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal and Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin to discuss the latest developments on the situation in Syria, according to a tweet by the US embassy in Turkey.

"Today in Idlib, Turkey, our ally, faces a threat. This threat comes from the government of Russia and Assad," Jeffrey told reporters when arriving in Turkey late on Tuesday, referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
