Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan can have a telephone conversation soon, Kremlin Aide Yuri Ushakov said, APA reports citing TASS.
"What I do know is that Turkey has requested an opportunity to talk over the phone. We will coordinate the time and answer," Ushakov commented.
Erdogan earlier told reporters at a news conference in Ankara that he planned to discuss the situation in Syria with the Russian leader. According to the Turkish president, Ankara "will honor its part of the commitments under the agreements that had been reached to the very end."
"We do not back away from the memorandum," he added.
On Thursday, Erdogan stated that the PKK fighters had not withdrawn their fighters from northeastern Syria yet.
