The sides agreed to take emergency measures, primarily at the level of the defence ministries of Russia and Turkey, to further strengthen the coordination of activities in Syria.

They also confirmed their support for the intra-Syrian dialogue within the framework of the Constitutional Committee in Geneva.

While exchanging views on a settlement in Libya, the presidents emphasised the importance of complying with the ceasefire, which began on January 12, 2020, as well as implementing the decisions adopted at the international conference in Berlin on January 19.
