Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu (right) and former Syrian Brig. Gen. Manaf Tlass pause for the media before a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner at Mr. Davutoglu’s residence in Ankara on July 26. The general, after defecting from Syria, made his surprise visit to Turkey soon afterward. Gen. Tlas says he defected when he realized that longtime friend President Bashar Assad could not be deterred from crushing opposition to his regime. But some Syrians suspect his motives may be political.
