KATHMANDU: The United Nations on Friday warned that escalating fighting in northwest Syria could end in a “bloodbath”, international media reports said.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan phoned Russia’s leader to discuss the quickly deteriorating situation.

The Kremlin said Russian President Vladimir Putin and Erdogan agreed to intensify talks on Syria’s Idlib region to reduce tensions and implement a ceasefire.

Putin told Erdogan he was “seriously concerned” by the “aggressive actions” of rebels in Idlib.

“The necessity of unconditional respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria was underlined,” the Kremlin statement said.
