MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Thursday it was concerned by the humanitarian situation in northern Syria following Turkey’s decision to launch a military operation there.

Peskov said Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan would discuss Turkey’s actions in Syria at a meeting in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Tuesday next week.
