Yildirim's visit came after Syrian and Iranian officials made attempts to arrange this meeting between Yildirim and the two Turkish journalists. The two Turkish journalists were last seen on March 9.
Dailies also drew attention to a decision made by the Disciplinary Board of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) on early Monday.

The board decided to bar football player Ibrahim Akin from games for three years for influencing the score of a game between Fenerbahce and Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyesi (IBB).
