Turkey says it agreed with Russia to prevent violations in Syria

Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar and his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu agreed to work together to prevent violations of a ceasefire in northern Syria in a phone call, Turkish state media reported on Thursday.
Earlier this week, Turkey expressed to Russia's envoy its objections and concerns about a recent flare-up of violence in northwest Syria, after Russian jets hit towns near the Turkish border and a hospital in the region.
Akar also said he agreed with Shoigu to work together to bring "terrorist groups" in northern Syria under control.
