ANKARA, February 10. /TASS/. Turkey and Russia will create a commission after the incident with the death of Turkish troops in northern Syria with the goal of preventing similar situations in the future, a source in Turkey’s General Staff told TASS.
"No doubt, a commission will be formed after the incident. However, its goal will be to prevent such incidents in the future and enhance coordination of actions between our countries," the source said.
The relations of Turkey and Russia should develop positively as this is "important for both sides and from the viewpoint of ensuring peace in the (Middle East) region," the source added.
"We were very saddened by the death of our troops. We pray for the health of the wounded. We hope that nothing like that will happen again and our region will be soon cleaned from the Islamic State terrorist group (outlawed in Russia)," he said.
"This incident certainly put both countries in a difficult situation. But from the very beginning the Turkish Armed Forces took a prudent position. The necessary contacts were held with the Russian side at the level of the president and the prime minister," the source said.
"The Turkish side was satisfied by the position that Russia took from the very beginning when the incident occurred," he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin offered condolences to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan over the tragic incident that caused the death of the Turkish servicemen.
