AMMONNEWS - The Syrian government in Damascus must receive control of the Syrian-Turkish border, said Russia's Foreign Ministry's spokesperson Maria Vladimirovna Zakharova, according to Interfax.

Russia is an ally of the regime of Bashar al-Assad, based in Syria's capital Damascus.

Last week, Turkey launched a military offensive into northeastern Syria, which was under the control of Kurdish-led forces. At least 218 civilians have been killed, according to the Kurdish-led authorities, as Turkish forces continue to fight against Kurdish-led forces for the control of border towns.
