ANKARA, October 2. /TASS/. Ankara keeps all communication channels open with Russia that is carrying out military operations in Syria, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Friday.
"In line with the rules, Russia has informed us about the operations but did not report where it will conduct them. We keep all the communication channels open with Russia. I don’t think it will take steps that will arouse our concerns," the prime minister said.
Davutoglu said "by its actions the Russian side opens possibilities for actions" of the Syrian leadership and President Bashar al-Assad.
Russia launched airstrikes against the Islamic State (IS) positions in Syria on Wednesday at the request of President al-Assad. Russia’s upper house unanimously gave President Vladimir Putin approval to use the Russian Armed Forces abroad earlier that day.
