Russia and Turkey have signed an agreement spelling out mechanisms to "coordinate" their air forces in Syria when conducting strikes "on terrorist targets", the Russian defence ministry said Thursday.

Delegations from the two countries, which last month brokered a ceasefire in war-torn Syria, met in Moscow and signed a document that "defines the mechanisms to coordinate and cooperate" on strikes as well as to prevent dangerous incidents in Syrian airspace, the ministry said.
