Sochi summit expected to tackle Turkey’s enmity toward Syrian Kurdish militia

I don’t expect Sochi summit to yield any definitive result for a post-ISIS Syria settlement. The parties have vast differences of opinion.   Erdogan flew to Sochi to gain approval to remove Kurdish militia from Afrin, while Iran wants Assad to have unquestioned sovereignty over entire Syria.   Russia just wants to collect its gains and get out.
