MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. The Kremlin has preferred to refrain from comments on whether the Turkish president clarified his own statement on the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad when he spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the phone.

The Kremlin press service said earlier the Russian and Turkish presidents had discussed the pressing issues of Russian-Turkish relations, including the bilateral contacts due to take place at various levels shortly.
Putin also expressed condolences over the death of children during fire in a dormitory for girls in the southern Turkish city of Adana.
