Erdogan says cooperating fully in military sphere with Russia on Syria

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said in Moscow on Friday after talks with Vladimir Putin that Turkey was cooperating entirely with Russia’s military over Syria.

Turkey launched a military operation in August to create a safe zone along its border inside Syria. Russia also has an active military presence backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
