Putin and Erdogan discuss Syria - media

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed recent developments in Syria in an telephone call today, a Turkish presidential source said, adding that the two leaders agreed to remain in close contact.

The officials said the two leaders held a telephone conversation hours after Erdogan said he would discuss ways of ending the "chemical massacre" in Syria with Putin.

The officials provided the information on condition of anonymity in line with government regulations, the AP reported.

The call with Putin came after Erdogan earlier spoke to US President Donald Trump on the phone and also exchanged views on Syria.
