Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Monday urged world powers including Iran, Russia and the United States to join together to rapidly open a "new page" in the Syria crisis.

"It is vital that without losing more time a new page is opened in Syria, based on a model involving particularly Turkey, Iran... Russia, the United States and some Gulf states and Saudi Arabia," he told reporters after a cabinet meeting.

Yildirim added that it was "absolutely unacceptable" for any Kurdish entity to be established in northern Syria, southern Turkey or any other region.
