Turkey and Russia have a joint will to clear all "terrorist" groups from Syria, Turkey’s foreign minister said in Moscow on Saturday.

Mevlut Cavusoglu is in the Russian capital for talks on Syria between top Turkish and Russian officials.

"We will continue close cooperation with Russia and Iran on Syria and regional issues," Cavusoglu stated, adding that Turkey and Russia -- as guarantors of the Astana peace process -- are defending Syria’s territorial integrity and political unity from all efforts to harm them.

In addition to Cavusoglu, Turkey's National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, intelligence chief Hakan Fidan and presidential aide Ibrahim Kalin arrived on Saturday for the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu, chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov, Presidential Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev, and presidential aide Yuri Ushakov.
