Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday October 10th that Ankara and Damascus should discuss the issue of Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria directly, calling Turkey's cross-border assault a product of US policies, AFP has reported.

"We will strive for the necessity of dialogue between Turkey and Syria," he said, adding that resolving the issue in the past was "made difficult by the actions of the Americans and the coalition."
