Kremlin: no one has right to criticize Russia and Turkey for military cooperation
Russian-Turkish military and technical cooperation is no way aimed against any third countries, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"No one has any right to criticize Russia and Turkey for military and technical cooperation, which is in strict compliance with the international law and is no way aimed against any third countries," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
