SOT, Vasily Nebenzya, Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN: "You know that President Putin is in continuous dialogue with President Erdogan. Before, they spoke today, President Erdogan is coming to Moscow soon, of course, this issue [Turkish operation in Syria] will be discussed there. The Turkish side tells us that they will respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and that the final aim will be to ensure that the Syrian territory is sovereign and fully territorial integral. We understand the Turkish national security concerns, but we believe that the operation that they are conducting should be proportional to the aims that they declared. Thank you very much."
