MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan by phone on Wednesday to avoid any steps in Syria that could damage its peace process, the Kremlin said, as Turkey prepared to launch an operation in northeastern Syria.

The Kremlin said that both Putin and Erdogan agreed in the phone call that Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected, the Kremlin said.
