MOSCOW - Russia has evidence that Turkish armed forces are on Syrian territory, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in comments to Ren-TV, which were broadcast on Sunday and quoted by Russian news agencies.

Lavrov also called Turkey's actions on the Turkish-Syrian border "creeping expansion" and said Russia would insist the United Nations invites Kurds to peace talks on the Syrian conflict despite Turkey's opposition.

He added Russia was willing to coordinate its actions in Syria with the United States so that the city of Raqqa could be taken back.
