By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Turkey is concerned about Russia's decision to use the country's armed forces abroad, a source in the Turkish presidential administration told Trend Oct. 1.
Russia's decision can aggravate the situation in Syria, the source said, adding that Turkey is closely following the developments in Syria following this decision of the Russian Federation.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has recently appealed to the Federation Council for permission to use the Russian armed forces abroad. The Senate approved this request. The head of the Russian Presidential Administration Sergey Ivanov told reporters that this decision concerns Syria and the matter rests in the military air force operation.
Russia sent military aircraft to Syria after Damascus's request. The Russian military air forces attacked the positions of the Islamic State terrorist organization.
