Russia and Turkey agree on conflict prevention in Syria

Turkey and Russia agreed on the prevention of clashes between Turkey-backed opposition Free Syrian Army (FSA) and government forces, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

"We have agreed with Russia on the prevention of clashes between the FSA and the Syrian government forces in order to intensify the fight against ISIS," Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara.

Cavusoglu denied the latest media reports of an alleged agreement with Russian mediation on Kurdish militia handing over territories to the east of Al Bab to the Syrian government forces.

"There are all sorts of news and speculation. This is all untrue. We are now seeing that the Syrian government forces are moving to the east," Sputnik cited him as saying.
